I was first licensed in 1965 as a freshman student in High School. 

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.  I semi-retired in 2003, moved to my current QTH, and taught engineering courses to the next generation of EE's until my official retirement in June, 2015.

The station is comprised of Yaesu, Harris, and home brew equipment. Since I live in an antenna restricted community, all my antennas are small and stealth. The QTH is located 1,000 ft above the Sacramento valley in northern California so the close-in Fresnel zone to the south and west is favorable and helps offset the small antenna limitations in those directions.


40M Phased Magnetic Loop Antenna - the bottom wires are 3 feet above ground and the top wires are 14 feet above ground.
