First licensed in 1968 as WN8AEW. Moved around while in college and had various call signs: WB8ISG, WB4ALY, and WD8BUW. Let license lapse (gasp!) in 1975 and got active again in 2000 (after continued friendly harassment from my brother, WB8AGV and my first cousin K8RMX). Found that my old call sign of WB8ISG had not been re-issued, and since I was most active while holding this callsign, had it re-assigned as a vanity call. I am active on digital modes mostly--PSK31, HELL, RTTY, MFSK, etc. I have become active on SSTV--both analog and digital. I've also recently begun to explore and use WINDRM--digital audio. I will try any band that is open--160m on down. I am now operating exclusively from my home in northern MI (Boyne City). I'm a pilot and own a Cardinal II, fly RC airplanes and am an HO scale model railroader. 

I'm also an avid astronomer, taught it in the past, but amateur now since I retired in 2011.  Work for NASA/JPL as a Solar System Ambassador (educational outreach) now. I'm president of the local astronomy club (Northern Michigan Astronomy Club (www.nomac.net) and write weekly space science columns for two local newspapers. Currently, I'm an Adj. Professor, Dept. of Physics (Astronomy), Oakland University, Rochester, MI.

Main rig here is a Yaesu FT-950, Palstar AT1500DT tuner, an Ameritron AL-80B linear amp (rarely), and a 160m through 6m dipole at about 50' .

I also use a Yaesu FT-897 for UHF and VHF with a small discone omnidirectional antenna and still do some CW and phone, too. I look forward to a QSO with you!
