I work as VE coordinator for Marco Island hams who are very active in giving free Ham radio classes during the tourist season as well as testing sessions.

Much of my time is donated to the Marco Island Civil Air Patrol as communications officer for the past 12 years. We have built one of the better CAP communications centers in the USA.
