The profile pictures show my wife and I on our first date in 1967 at a ham radio contest on Staten Island in New York City. Believe it or not she said yes to a second date and also later to a marriage proposal. The last picture shows us 40 years later in 2007.
I was originally licensed in 1961 as WV2QYO. Later I held the calls WA2QYO and W2QYO. I changed my call to W2WB on 9-4-09.

Profession: Dentist and I do forensic odontology at the local medical examiners office. I belong to DMORT (National Disaster Medical System / Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team) which is part of HHS (Dept. of Health and Human Services). We are composed of forensic experts who are deployed by the federal government to identify victims in mass disasters. I was deployed four times (9/11/2001 - WTC, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Continental Flight 3407 in Buffalo, NY in 2009 and the Haiti Earthquake in 2010).
