Active from both Woburn MA (FN42kl) and Harpswell ME (FN43xs). The photo above is my home in MA.
First licensed in 1962 as KN1VFX (Novice) and then K1VFX (Technician). Acquired W1DYJ in 1966.
I was active on the 60's from Stratford, CT. Starting with a HB and rock-bound 807 on 80M CW. My favorite band was 6M with a HB 2E26 plate modulated with a pair of 6L6s feeding a rooftop 6 element homebrew (ARRL design) yagi. Barely active during the 70's and 80's, due to marriage and kids, I became active again in 1994 from Woburn MA, with a TS-430S and FT-736R. I replaced the above with a Kenwood TS-2000 in 2001 after obtaining my Extra Class license in 2000.
In 2008 we bought a second home in Harpswell, Maine and I am bringing up a second station there. First with a TS-450SAT, I replaced this with a TS-590 in January 2013. I mostly enjoy contesting and chasing DX -- from grid squares to countries -- and modeling/building/testing antennas.
I retired in 2012 after 24 years of Diagnostic Cardiac equipment R&D development and management with Hewlett-Packard Medical Products Group, followed by 19 years providing and managing Technical and Legal Education with HP, Agilent Technologies and Avago Technologies.
