Dx Summit Users: If you see my callsign listed as a spotter it is NOT me. Like many hundreds of other amateur radio operators my callsign was hijacked by somebody.  I am NOT a spotter on Dx Summit or any other service - user yes, spotter no.

Age is 64 and have been a ham radio operator since 1980.

Professions: Urologic Surgeon and retired Airman Medical Examiner for the FAA

Other occupations: I was part of the player development staff for the Columbus Clippers Baseball team when it was the AAA team of the New York Yankees. From 1990-2000 I was one of the PA announcers at the ballpark.

Other hobbies: I am a private pilot IFR rated and have owned an American Champion Explorer 7GCBC, Cessna 182 and 210. I also fly R/C airplanes and operate R/C power boats.

Sports: Fly fishing (partipant) and ice hockey (former participant, now on permament DL)

Expert at: Time Managment

Member of: ARRL, Madison County Amateur Radio Club of Ohio, SKCC (#3941),  FIST (#10930). OMISS (#6808), NA QRP CW Club 6749, and Flying Pigs #2911.
