2014 marked my 50th year in Amateur Radio! It's hard to believe, especially since I'm enjoying this great hobby as much today as I did back in 1964. To celebrate, on August 18, 2014  I had the privilege of operating W100AW at ARRL Headquarters in Newington; a great thrill.  

I am a native of New Jersey where my calls were WA2S and WB2PRS (WN2PRS). My XYL and I retired in 2009 and relocated to the Tar Heel State and couldn't be happier here in our new home.
I enjoy every aspect of the hobby from Digital to Satellites (VUCC Satellites with a 5W Handie-Talkie) and everything in between. You name it, I'll try it, including recent excursions into Digital Voice on HF. I'm an occasional contester. My favorites are CW Sweepstakes, the North Carolina QSO Party and the QRP sprints. I have been enjoying Summits On The Air (SOTA) with over 7,000 chaser points. I've activated summits here in N.C. as well as in Ireland and Utah.
I'm currently running an FTdx1200 and a KX3 (#0602).  There's nothing better than working DX while sitting on the beach or on top of a mountain, running 5 Watts to a simple wire antenna. Being retired affords me additional time to operate in special events. I was privileged to be part of the W1AW/4 team celebrating the ARRL Centennial in North Carolina and had a blast.

Married to the lovely and very ham radio patient Eileen for 46 years, we have 3 grown daughters and three beautiful grandchildren. They are the highlights of our lives. Thanks to everyone in my logbook for some great QSO's. The next 50 years should be as wonderful as the first 50.
