I first heard about ham radio in 1969 from my neighbor and mentor, Gary Parks, K6UIM (SK).  I was first licensed in 1973 as WN6VHV, later WA6VHV in 1974.   My license changed to WA6IGR a few years later for remote control privileges. I have held the call sign ever since. I was not an active ham, except for a 2 meter radio in the car, for about 25 years, and am now back into it. Upgraded to USA Extra Class in January 2012. Volunteer Examiner with ARRL VEC, along with a number of hams in Jerusalem, Israel. 

Did my first hamming in the 1970's with the El Cajon Amateur Radio Club and later the Newport Amateur Radio Society, in Newport Beach, California. Owned and operated a UHF repeater with autopatch on Santiago Peak from 1977 to 1981. I learned a lot about radio, antennas, and control systems from Mike, WA6VLD, who took over the Santiago Peak system when I moved away from Southern California.

I was the founder and service manager of Advanced Communication Services, a pager repair and two way radio depot, in Denver, Colorado, and the founder of PageTap, Inc., a radio remote control systems manufacturer. Since moving to Israel in 2000, I founded Efrat Networks with my business partner, Joel Gering. I love to write about what I know and don't know. 

I have lived in Israel since 2000 and received 4Z5UG in August 2010. I upgraded to an Israeli Class A license, 4Z1UG in Feb 2013. I am the founder of the Jerusalem Amateur Radio Society in Jerusalem, Israel. I maintain the 145.625 (R1) repeater that serves the Jerusalem area. I also operate an Allstar node, 28422, and use it to primarily access the WinSystem in the USA.

I now have a podcast on amateur radio called: QSO Today.  A QSO with hams about ham radio and how the hobby has affected their personal and professional lives.  The podcast is intended for new and returning hams - or anyone that wants to know more about our hobby.
