I received my Novice license in 1965 & upgraded the following year to General class followed by another upgrade to Extra Class.  I actively chased DX during my high school years.

Engineering studies in college left little time for amateur radio & I was mostly inactive during that time.

I spent 30 years in Silicon Valley working in telecommunications and computer engineering for IBM and Siemens. During that time, my amateur activity gradually increased again - mostly chasing DX on CW, my favorite mode.  I semi-retired & moved to my current QTH ten years ago and have since enjoyed teaching engineering courses to the next generation of aspiring electronic engineers.

The station is comprised of Yaesu and commercial transceivers. Amplifiers, when needed, are vintage Henry or home brew.  My current QTH is in an antenna restricted community so I use low profile antennas and I am always experimenting with new designs.  The QTH is located at 1000 ft overlooking the Sacramento Valley in Northern California so the close-in Fresnel zone clearance to the south and west is favorable and helps offset the smaller antenna limitations in those directions.

73's & I am looking forward to our next QSO.
