Ham Member Lookups: 7777


I had my first radio license in 1955 as WN9JQA. I upgraded to Conditional in 1956 as W9JQA. After Graduating from Rose Polytechnic , Terre Haute, Indiana with a BSEE in Electrical Engineering I moved to Independence, Missouri and became a General Class as K0LTV. Four years later i took a job in Rochester, New York at General Dymanics Electronics and changed my callsign to WA2WVL. In 1965 I moved across town to work for RF Communications (which was latter bought by Harris Corporation). In 1965 I was one of the operators at the XE5L DXpedition.

I stayed 33 years at RF Com with many interesting design programs which included:

2000 KW 50 mhz Transmitter for US Air Force.

50 KW 2-30 Autotune Transmitter for US Navy

10 KW 2-30 Solid State Transmitter for production

10 KW 2-30 Digital Autotune Antenna Coupler

4 KW Broadband transmitting System for US and Canadian Navys

Did preliminary antenna designs for the HAARP program

In 1993 I presented a paper 'Design and construction of Wire Yagis' at the Dayton Hamvention. (Included booms to 100 meters)
