I've worked in the Electronics industry for 40 plus years. First 12 as an Electronics Technician in the Navy repairing equipement and teaching electronics and since 1983 working for General Electric Healthcare. First 16 years with GE was Field Service working on CT, MR and Mammo equipment. Since 1998 I have been a National On Line Support Engineer for CT and PET products.
I was QRT from 1992 until the end of 2008 due to work and restrictive antenna covenents. Wow what a change when I became active again. No code and DSP radios. CW skills rapidly go down hill when you don't use them. Its been a struggle with the old ears but they are coming around slowly.
About 98% of my operating is on CW which is my favorite mode usually chasing DX. Finally took the plunge and jumped into PSK31 and having fun with it.
Rig here is an FT-2000 feeding an 80 meter Carolina Windom at 30 ft.
