Spent 10 years in the U.S. Coast Guard starting out as a Radio Operator then changing rate to that of electronics technician. Left the USCG as E6 /ET-1. Following the USCG I briefly worked for the FCC at the Livermore monitoring station (couldn't see staying with the commission for 14K a year)put twenty five years in the U.S. Merchant Marine as a ship board radio officer. Received my commission in US Naval Reserve and later departed as LT Cmdr. During that time I traveled to 27 countries and around the world one time completely. Spent most of that time at sea traveling through out the Pacific rim. Loved going to sea as a radio operator and spent most of those years in the Far East, Japan, Taiwan and Hong Kong departing from and returning to the the West coast of the United States. Most interesting places I've seen: Israel, Egypt pyramids, the Cairo Museum was exquisite, Panama canal and Pyongyang North Korea to name only a few. Favorite country outside of the United States is Japan.

Currently working on my own as an electronics technician, servicing amateur radio equipment and consumer electronics. Now in my retirement I own and run my own service shop, http://www.certifiedelectronics.org

Hold whats was once a First Class telephone license(1977 Reissued as GROL.) Second Class Radiotelegraph license radar endorsed. ~CET~ Certified Electronic technician "ISCET" and two AS degrees in electronics technology. I studied Japanese on my own for many years while at sea and later formally at the UNC Charlotte NC. I still enjoy continuing education in Japanese language while reading and writing albeit at an elementary level. I also enjoy making Japanese language contacts with Japanese amateurs on all amateur bands in order to keep up on my language skills.

Primary interest in amateur radio. Restoration of vintage broadcast radios and vintage AM (Yaesu, Gonset & Johnson)equipment, QRP on 7.040 KHz, I enjoy using and restoring vintage AM equipment that I activity use in the AM window of 75 meter and 40 meter phone bands. I also enjoy 10 meter and 6 meter SSB and AM in the 29 MHz AM window. Best time I ever had on the air was working six meters from shipboard. I had to beat off the Japanese stations with a stick! Changing grid squares ever six hours or so made for some rare DX at sea. I was receiving requests for QSL cards for nearly 9 years after the last contact. Six is great if you have the patience for it!

If you have the skill to operate a radio, then there is little need for a $3000 dollar appliance in the shack.

At the very top of the 150 foot tower the W4CLM/B 6 meter Beacon runs 20 watts on 50.064 MHz,

& the Ten Meter Beacon at the same location runs at 20w on 28.232.5 MHz +/- a little.
