Say hello to "ARNOLD" one of my three live-in burglar alarms.PAISLEY and DYNAMITE are bashful.
Welcome to my home, office, lab, shop, and hamshack.
I am an IEEE,ITE, IMSA, RCA, APCO, and ARRL Life Member with appointments as EC for Chesterfield County and State Government Liaison for the Virginia Section of the ARRL.
The following photos provide an overview of my office, lab, and ham shack. Working ham equipment for 5KC to 1296Mhz.--including YAESU, ICOM,ALINCO, Drake, Ten Tec, Alpha, AMP Supply, SWAN, MFJ, RCI, RACAL and other manufacturers.I workSatellite, SSB, FM, P25,including Digital Communicationsin D-STAR, PACKET & APRS.
Lab equipment from HP, Tektronix, IFR, Motorola, Bird, Anritsu, Array Solutions, MFJ, ICOM, Astron, Wavetek, RACAL, Waters, Diamond, Fluke, Tracor, Efratom, Spectracom, Chroma, Key Tek, is some ofthe equipment seen here. Servicing, Calibration and Certification of ham, commercial and military equipment can be done on an individualized basis. I maintain parts, cable,antennas, and some spare equipment in storage. Lastly, I maintain a rack of Atomic and GPS frequency, time, and calibration equipment tracable to NIST standards for receivers, transceivers, transmitters and lab as well as portable test equipment.
SMT component repairs can be done in the lab by special request, field service, site analysis, frequency coordiniation, EMC and, RFI lab testing and measurementsareare available by appointment.
I enjoy research and experimenting, working with equipment for Antenna Design, RF transmitting as well as seismic and weather recording and analysis. Not seen here are my numerous ham antenna systems for 160M -1296 MHz In addition, a library is maintained containing many technical standards and references, ham and commercial manuals, schematics, test equipment manuals, etc Certification Standards from IEEE, FCC, ANSI, ETI, EN and MIL etc.with test procedures, ham and commercial manufacturers literature, parts references, ARRL manual libraries, all of which are available to hams, labs, etc.
Technical presentations and training materials are available for Antenna Design (MIL, Commercial, & Ham), Electronics Eqpt Design & Test, Ham Radio, Emergency Communications Equipment and Deployment, Red Cross, Fire and EMS, and CCP as well as NRA Firearms training
Power Electronics, MIL and Public Safety Communications,EMS, Police, Fire, and Ham Radio have been my professional career, as well as a passion and hobby for me for over 50 years---K3WRY
I became interested in electronics during the Korean War. I started in ham radio by building own transmitter and buying a Hallicrafters receiver. Over the years built and bought many pieces of ham and other types of electronics equipment. Took electronics interest to school and eventual PhD. While in school and after graduation ,worked in EMS and communications and as a police officer and retired early. Communications design, including power and early UPS systems advanced into engineering, sales, service including design and development of rugged MIL and RF power systems.
Experience includes--employment by power and UPS Mil equipment manufacturers doing design, product development, application and engineering support, and moved into senior management and executive positions. Visited many MIL bases and field operations, EMS and Communications facilities and sites including, ships, aircraft, etc. around the world. Enjoy building projects as well as doing research and design for ham equipment as well as some specialized MIL applications on EMC, EMI, and EMP projects.
Interests include ---Amateur Satellites, Award Hunting, Building Antennas, Building Equipment, Contests, Continuing Education Training. Training Courses for EMS/EMT and Emergency Communications,, Hamfests , DXing, ARES/RACES, Field Day, Mobile & Portable Operating Digital Communications, D-Star, NAVY MARS, Training of FEMA and CERT courses in numerous subjects of Public Service and Community Safety, Repeater Operation & Maintaince, Message & Traffic Handling, Vintage Equipment (Restoring Operating), Weak Signal (VHF/UHF/Microwave).
I can't sit still.
A BUSY MIND IS A HEALTHY MIND----BEING AN ELMER IS A PRIVILEGE------EDUCATION IS A PRIVILEDGE------------------
Memberships include---ARRL Life, NRA Life, IEEE, IMSA, ITE, APCO, Time-Nuts, AMRAD, Richmond Amateur Telecommunications Society, Richmond Amateur Radio Club, Potomac Valley Radio Club, Central Virginia Contest Club, Red Cross, Navy MARS, Amateur Radio Emergency Services, RACES, VA Fone Net, Amateur Radio Communications Auxilary of Virginia Dept of Emergency Services EOC. National EMS/RESCUE, National Weather Assn., AMS.
BEING PREPARED IS AN AVOCATION OF MINE-----LUCK--IS WHERE PREPARATION MEETS OPPORTUNITY-------------------------------
GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US - AND - GOD BLESS AMERICA
