Ham Member Lookups: 6419


First licensed in 1959 at the age of 10. WA5FAC is my original call sign, obtained in the little East Texas town of Pittsburg.

I trained as a Physicist, Radiologic Physicist, then finally as a Physician. Graduated Vanderbilt Medical School in 1976. Later, internship, residency and fellowships in Radiology and Interventional Neuroradiology. I specialize in minimally invasive (image-guided) therapy of the brain and spinal cord. Previously, director of Interventional Neuroradiology and Diagnostic Neuroradiology at the Univ. of Maryland and Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. (Books "Percutaneous Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty" and "Image-Guided Spine Interventions" found on Amazon.com. Both now in second edition and Chinese translation)

Now in private practice in Roanoke, Va. I work part-time in this practice and consult for startup companies and the FDA (Injectable biomaterials). I serve on the advisory board for the graduate school of Biomedical Engineering at Va. Tech and Wake Forest.

I enjoy CW, ragchew, antenna and equipment construction and experimentation.

I am trustee of club station W5CUI (the call of my mentor, Milt Landrum, now SK). W5CUI gave me his time and interest in ham radio. By so doing, I became interested in electronics which gave the boost I needed to study and persue my education. Every child should be so lucky.


(Operating WA5FAC / W5CUI)


You will find me operating as W5CUI most of the time to honor this friend.

I enjoy sailing and you may hear me on as V31JM from Belize. I live on a small farm in southwest Virginia (elevation 2000 feet).

(A view from the deck, looking at Roanoke and the Southern Shenandoah Valley)





I raise goats, chickens and antennas. Here a couple of pictures from the farm.

Hope to see you on the bands.

I QSL 100% and prefer direct. No return postage required.

Sincerely, John
