ARRL, EPC #20405 and Pickens County Emergency Radio Group
My Photo shows Me and my two fuzzy harmonics, Andy and Lacie at the station.
I QSL via QRZ (auto) (AG), LoTW or Direct. I go by my nick name "Buz" and got my Ham Ticket in 1961 in Little Rock Arkansas. I am a semi-retired Manufacturing/Tool Engineer, working part time for a large automotive company in SC and own my own Mechanical Design Company, where I provide mechanical CAD designs. I have been sporadically active in Amateur Radio over the years, but plan to stay active now since I have more time on my hands. I have many hobbies and interests, so Amateur Radio is not necessary my prime activity. I am active in Scottish History, especially the border Johnston/e Clan and in the Clan Johnston/e in America. I also do genealogy family research and also provide assistance to other's looking for family members here in the upstate of South Carolina. I am an avid camper and own my own RV class A camper. I enjoy photography, computers and college sports. Since building a workshop, I hope to be doing some woodworking projects that I have put off for many years. In my younger days, I was a professional Drummer for 27 years playing Rock & Roll, Rhythm & Blues, Jazz and Country and have been fortunate to work with some very big names in the music business. I was born in Ft. Smith Arkansas, so I am a Razorback fan by birth, but since moving to SC in 1983, I've become a big Clemson fan. I also am involved with my church where I serve as an usher and a member of the drama and Kidz ministry.
