Hello,

I am located in the southwestern part of Connecticut about 35 miles from New York City. I majored in Electrical Engineering in college and took a job at IBM in 1962. I was immediately asked to learn how to develop software which I was quite unhappy about, until I realized the great opportunities available in software development. The first system I worked on was the Delta Airlines Reservations System (SABRE). The computer had 14000 bytes (yes-characters) of main memory but very fast drums (Like very fast disk but 10 times faster) to load and unload programs. It actually went live with 450 online terminals and amazingly, it worked really well!! The machine cost 12 million dollars. It just goes to show you how far things have come in 50+ years. I ended up co-founding a software company in New York City which developed systems for the securities industry. I am now retired.

I have always been interested in amateur radio and in fact built a Heathkit DX-35 transmitter when I was 15 but I did not get my ticket until April, 2005. I have a Ten Tec Orion II, a Yaesu Ft 1000MP MK V and a Yaesu FT-2000. Amplifiers are an Ameritron 811H, aTen Tec Titan 425 and an Ameritron ALS-1300 solid state amp. I have 4 V-Beam antennas and a 570 foot horizontal loop. For contesting I put up a rhombic facing Europe. No beam yet,all wire.

I prefer QSL Direct. No eqsl.
