I like to operate both CW and SSB on the HF bands. I am on 10/15/20/40 meter bands most of the time. 2011 was my 50th year anniversary as a Ham Radio Operator.

I taught Industrial Arts for the Los Angeles Unified School District from 1972 to 2002. Additionally, I sailed as a Civilian Merchant Marine Radio Officer durring my summer vacations off from LAUSD and worked on 38 different merchant ships from 1968 to 1998. I gave up all my jobs in 2002 and I am now enjoying my Ham Radio Hobby in retirement.

I hold the following FCC Commercial licenses: 1st class RadioTelegraph, GROL, GMDSS (operator & maintainer). All my commercial licenses have the Radar endorcement. I am also a Volunteer Examiner with both W5YI and the Greater Los Angeles Amateur Radio Group. Additionally, I am the appointed ARRL WAS card checker for the San Fernando Valley, CA area.

I QSL 100% using both Logbook of the World (LOTW) and eQSL and appreciate receiving QSL's the same way! Please support and use Log Book of the World (LOTW), It is an inexpensive way to send and receive QSL's for those who do not need a paper QSL. LOTW QSL's are good for all ARRL Awards and Certificates and some CQ magazine awards. If you need a paper QSL card from me, include a SASE for my return QSL card.
