I've been licensed since 1963, first with a Novice ticket as WN9IVH. I up-graded to General a year later, to Advanced 1973, and to Extra on 3/11/00. I'm currently the Net Director for a wonderful ham club, the North Shore Radio Club in Highland Park, Illinois. (www.ns9rc.org)

As time permits, I'm active on the HF bands, as well as 2 meter FM. I have an MFJ-1278B multimode, which I use primarily on HF. I added PSK-31 a few years ago,and I think it's a really fun mode. But most of my contest operating is on RTTY. I discovered I really enjoy that mode. For contesting, I use MMTTY software with the WriteLog plug-in. E-mail me if you'd like any help setting it up.

I'm running an Icom 756 Pro III, with an Ameritron AL-811A linear. My antennas start with a dipole for 80. In March, 2005, I added a 3-element SteppIR for 20-6. As my picture shows, I have since added the 30/40 modification. So now the SteppIR covers 40-6 meters. I also use a 2 meter ground plane and an Austin Suburban tri-band vertical for 2 meters, 220, and 440. I also have Standard and Radio Shack HT's for 144, 220, and 440 operation. In the car, I have an Icom 207H dual-bander. I also have an APRS tracker in the car. Finally, I have a VHF Win-Link station that doubles as a Packet station.

I worked in television and corporate video all my career. During college, I worked as a cameraman for WITI-TV in Milwaukee, and as a director with KFIZ-TV in Fond du lac, Wisconsin. After graduation, I worked in production at WFRV-TV in Green Bay, and at KPHO-TV in Phoenix, Arizona. I changed careers and moved to Chicago to join Bell & Howell in 1979. For the next 12 years worked there as Communications Manager. In 1991, I became Video Manager for Amoco Corporation in Chicago. While there, I started and then managed our in-house satellite television network. I then moved to become Manager, Business Television for Schneider Electric (formerly known as Square D Company) in Palatine, IL. I worked there for 9 years, and am now semi-retired running a small computer consulting/repair business in my spare time I call Klocksin Consulting.

I've found ham radio has been extremely helpeful to my career. Although most of what I've done professionally has not been very technical, my ability to understand and apply technology has been of great help to me many times.

73,
