I go by my middle name Henry and I have been licensed for over 49 years. I now live with my XYL near Reedville, Virginia, relocating from our home town of Richmond, VA in 2010, where I lived for 63 years. I retired from Lincoln Financial Media (the old Jefferson Pilot Communications Company) in 2008 as Vice President of Engineering for Television. I am active on most all amateur bands from 1.8 through 1296 MHz where my first love is contesting, chasing DX on CW and the techncial side of the hobby. I have two sons: Ryan, W4RCB, Will, KR4OI and my XYL is Debbie, WA4QOC.
