Retired from Fulton County Sheriff's Dept. in upstate N.Y. Trained 911 dispatchers and was a Law Enforcement Instructor. Spent 2009 and 2010 traveling around the US in our motorcoach with my wife CeCe and our cat Reese. We spent our winters in Abbeville, Louisiana in a R V Park. We fell in love with Abbeville and decided to buy a house there and settle down. I get on the air with a few oldies but goodies, kinda like me. We spend the summer months in Oshkosh, WI at the home of EAA Airventure, the biggest aviation event in the world. Both my wife and I work there setting up for the show and teach aircraft homebuilding during the show. I have a station set up there to work HF using a 5BTV at 15' mounted on the ladder rack. In March 2013 we decided we missed our friends and upstate NY, so we sold our LA house and moved back next to the house I grew up in.
