I was first licensed in 1960 as KN7LUP, upgraded to K7LUP, in Ogden, Utah. My interest in radio led to electrical engineering degrees from University of Utah and Northeastern University. My career began at Bell Telephone Laboratories in North Andover, MA and later included positions at Sperry Univac, Unisys, Raytheon E-Systems and L-3 Communications. Now in retirement, I have more time to engage in radio activities, amateur astronomy and music. I play bassoon with various local community symphony orchestras in the Salt Lake City area.
While in Massachusetts, I held W1EPU and upon returning to the Salt Lake Valley was given W7IHC. A few years ago, I requested a 1x2 call and received W7QL. I'm certain that hams at a major local business, Intermountain Health Care, were very happy to have me relinquish W7IHC.
I'm active in a variety of amateur radio modes, and have antennas and transceivers covering 7 MHz through 2.4 GHz.
