Welcome to my QRZ Biography page. I hope that you enjoying reading about some of my ham radio activities.
I am a life long resident of the Pittsburgh Pa area, and am a retired steel worker.
I became interested in ham radio in my teens, but did not get licensed until January of 1975. I have held several U.S. call signs, such as WN3UFI (Novice), WA3UFI (General), KC3ET(Advanced/Extra), and W3ON (Extra). I have also had the call sign ZF2OC for my several vacation style operations from Grand Cayman Island in the 1980's with friends of mine from the Pittsburgh Pa area. Those operations were a lot of fun. I encourage you to try it some time. Review the Cayman Amateur Radio Society web page at: http://www.caymanhams.org/ for more information.
I am also a Life Member of the American Radio Relay League
A member of The Quarter Century Wireless Association
Two Rivers Amateur Radio Club of McKeesport Pa

This net usually operates until either there is no more net business to conduct (checkins/work lists/chit chating). There is no set net closure time. It operates as long as a net control is available, and there is net business to conduct.
I have been issued Geratol # 2596 and Director # 706.
More information on the Geratol Net can be found at:
This is a great resource to observe radio propagation on the 75 meter band to various locations in the U.S. and Canada.There are many amateur radio operators who routinely check into this net from many areas of the U.S. and Canada, including Alaska and Hawaii. In many cases the radio propagation follows the Grey Line.
Well, I guess that I have just about finished telling you what I enjoy in ham radio. I sure hope that you also are enjoying your ham radio activities.
