Originally licensed in December 1952. Graduated with BSEE in 1960 from Washington State University, MS and PhD from the University of Washington 1968. Taught Electronic Circuit and System design in the University of Washington Department of Electrical Engineering for 36 years. Operated as KC4AAD Byrd Station Antarctica in late 60's. Now retired on Camano Island.
Operating on South Camano Island using an Icom 7600, Homebrew 1KW 4-1000A Amplifier, and a Super Loop 80 on top of the island at 300 feet over the water with a 600 ft feedline which can barely see over the island to the west. I also have a Carolina Windom half way up the hill at about 150 feet which works well to the east. Hope to add a beam to the antenna system soon.
In March 2012 I decided to assist the Stanwood Camano ARC, W7PIG, make a satellite contact during Field Day. I borrowed a couple of radios, and an Arrow antenna and attempted to make contacts on both FM and SSB satellites. I soon learned that this is an addictive facet of amateur radio. I purchased the Mac Doppler tracking program, a Kenwood TS-2000 transceiver, built the required computer interfaces, and am building a satellite antenna. I am having a great time on the Birds now and hope to have many more QSOs.
