I was first licensed in 1991 as one of the first groups of No-Code Technicians. I always was interested in Amateur Radio but was never able to get past the code. After about a year I decided to give CW a try and surprisingly was able to easily pass the 13 wpm test after only 30 days of studying. I wish I would have given it a better effort in the 60's when I first became interested. I upgraded to General and a week later to Advanced. Several years later I did the Extra Upgrade.

I have just retired after 40 years as an electrical engineer for a major corporation. I hope to become more active in the amateur radio hobby now that I have more time.

Some of my many hobbies include Motorcycle touring, Bicycle riding, anything related to aviation and target shooting just to name a few.

New 10 Meter Beacon in operation Oct 2011, for information, see below.

On the way to Nova Scotia

Cycling PA to MD





I have traveled from my home in Pennsylvania to Oshkosh, WI for the EAA Airventure by motorcycle every year for the past 8 years. It is a great way to enjoy a couple of hobbies at the same time. I hope to take my Icom 706 MIIG along and operate from the air show this year.

My shack consists of an Icom IC-756 Pro III, an Icom IC-737, an Icom IC-251 2M all mode, an Icom IC 706 MII G, A Heathkit SB200 Amplifier, various HT's and other radio related equipment.

I enjoy operating Phone, PSK31, RTTY, and very infrequently, CW.

New: I am now running a 10 Meter Beacon on 28.2978. It is running 5 watts 24/7. If you hear it please QSL or email me at:

WA3BM@yahoo.com. I will answer all QSL requests 100%. No SASE required.
