Originally licensed as WA3JPY (Tech) and WN3JPY (Novice) at the same time in 1967.   I've never changed the call, even though I have lived in North Carolina since 1970

Currently using a FTdx-9000MP exciter and the amp is one of several Henry models or some homebrew stuff running big tubes.  I love amplifiers and have built several, the best being a 4CX1500A running Super Cathode drive. Antennas mostly consist of wire strung in as many pine trees as I can get a line over.

I love flying and am lucky enough to own two aircraft, a 1984 YAK-50, and a 1974 UTVA-66, both Experimental Exhibition aircraft (and my 1968 502 Big Block [600 HP] Camaro!).

Spent 20 years in the Marine Corps, and did three Dets. on the USS Midway, a year on the USS Saratoga, and many carrier quals starting with the USS Lexington and ending with the USS Nimitz.  Ran numerous MARS stations aboard all those ships, and installed a 2 meter repeater aboard the USS Saratoga in 1984 (of course slightly out of the Amateur Band at 149 MHz!).  Spent another 24 years supporting Electronic Warfare with Marine Squadrons VMAQ-1,2,3 and 4.  Was the 3rd American Licensed in Bahrain as A92FL during Desert Storm, running many phone patches for the troops there, followed by tours in Iraqi Freedom I in Saudi Arabia  2003.  

Have 44 years now supporting the Marine Corps in one way or another and it has been my pleasure and honor to do so.  I enjoy "power" in any shape or form, starting with building amateur amplifiers, and ending with building high powered cars, and flying high powered airplanes.  Hang out on 3.895 once in awhile although I have to admit that some folks there get a little carried away with "owning" the frequency.  Heck, they even have a Web Site, (!!!)  which I admit is a little bit over the top.  That said, most of the hams there are good folks and will always enjoy your company, so check in once in awhile and say hello!
