The U.S. Post Office no longer issues IRC's so please consider using the LOTW system. Due to rising postal costs, lost mail, theft and a BURO delay of at least 2 years, adopting LOTW makes sense.

ABOUT ME:

All of my QSO's are done with 100 Watts. I consider it a challenge against a pile up with high power stations - just more satisfying for me.

I am a VE (Volunteer Examiner) for both the ARRL and W5YI

I really enjoy the thrill of the confirmation of a new entity. RTTY is my favorite mode for contests but really love CW for DX.
At 8 years old, my parents wouldn't let me have a ham radio, but I did enjoy SWL and my love for DX AM skip turned into a great AM radio career.

Obviously I did become a ham and stayed with radio since then. My love for radio extended into college as I was voted "Station Manager" for the college radio station. I then worked toward obtaining my F.C.C. First Class Radiotelephone License for my career of broadcast engineering.
I worked for 50KW AM radio staions WBZ-AM and WRKO-AM in Boston, MA and KNBR-AM in San Francisco. I left commercial broadcasting to run both an industrial security company and a LMR commuications shop.

My XYL is an author of adventure/fiction. If you have a moment, please visit the website I created for her www.mronagersbooks.com

I am a webmaster and editor when not on the radio.
