--Bio--

Born in 1961. Retired from my job as an Electrical Engineer after 17 years in the commercial broadcast radio and cellular telephone industries. First licensed in 1982 as KA5OXX, I became KE5SB in 1984, and finally WC5M in 1985. I enjoy chasing DX on CW. I recently became active on PSK31 and RTTY as well. My brother, WC5N, is also very active chasing DX on CW and RTTY. My dad K5WGQ (SK) was a very active CW DXer. I'm a W5YI and ARRL certified Volunteer Examiner. I enjoy Elmering new hams and building multi-band antennas and air-powered "antenna shooters". ARRL Life Member.
