Enjoy Amateur Radio, sports cars, stock market, our swimming pool and watching my son play college ball. I am married and have one son in college. The picture is of my corvette at the Jersey Shore QTH, my main QTH is in Denville NJ and my 3'rd QTH is in Florida. I enjoy DX ing on the HF bands and DSTAR operation. I also enjoy operating HF and DSTAR remotely from the Jersey Shore and Florida QTH's. We spend weekends in the summer watching my son play in the Jersey Shore Summer Collegiate League. Also enjoy antenna design and the old Collin's radios, especially the S Line and KWM2. I built about a 100 Heathkit radios when I was a teenager to buy my first radio a Heathkit HW101 aka the Hot Water 101. Love those tube finals and sound even had a CW filter as a option! Also am a ARRL VE and enjoy helping new ham operators setup and enjoy weightlifting and enjoyed building a weightlifter in my son. I still have and operate the first 2 radios I built the HW-101 and the SB-101. They still look like new and have 100 watts output. Not bad as they have been around the world and back and through 300 plus countries several times. I operate with 100 watts and finally started keeping a official log in January 2012 and putting some info on QRZ after all these years. My main radio is a Collins KWM2 and main backup radio is a Heathkit SB101. Sure makes DX a challenge when station is working split and spinning the KWM2 dial which doesn't even have the finger hole because its a 1959 very early model. I have a few modern solid state radios backing up the Collins also. Other pictures of my son at Florida QTH and Disney with his girlfriend and my other sports car.
