My interest in radio started with my Grandfather. He was a radio pioneer in Boston, having made a tube set in 1925. Everyone on the block would come and listen through headphones. When I was a kid, he used to come up to me and have a capacitor in his hand and ask us to take hold of it and put it on the table. That's when I became familiar with what a capacitor did.

I played around with electronics and radio becoming a "cb'er" in the early 60's and then became an avid SWL'er. I collected cards from all over the world by sending in signal reports.

I taught High School Instrumental Music in Southern California for 36 years. I once sent a recording of my High School Jazz band to Radio Prague. They had a jazz program at the time. After receiving a letter from them saying the would play my tape on such and such a date, I recorded it for the kids at school and played it for them. They were "Internationally Famous"! Hi, hi!

It wasn't until 1986 I took my Tech test. I did a lot of 10 meter SSB at that time and had a 10m/2m BBS in the Los Angeles area. Later, I took my General Amateur Radio test with Gordon West School. It was a very good experience and a lot of fun.

I also taught computer apps, technology, physical science, and journalism during my tenure.

I am now retired and living in Jacksonville, OR.
I'm active in the Century Club Nets and Omiss Nets. Also in Buros for both.

I QSL 100% direct or through the Century Club bureau. NO LOTW.
