"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

--Albert Einstein, when asked to describe radio.

If we have had a QSO, thank you, if this was a DX QSO please QSL via LOTW (needed for DXCC). I post all logs to LOTW, I will respond by card to any card received, if DX please include return postage.

I've had a deep interest in electronics since the late 50's, built many breadboard projects on 1x6 with Fahnestock clips. Attended a great Techical HS and studied electronics. Worked in the industry until joining the Navy in 1969. Obtained a commercial license with RADAR endorsement in early 70's. Attended Loyola University and then Northwood University, recieved a degree in Mgt while in the Navy. Retired from the Navy in Jan 1990. In my last assignment I taught electronics and computer programming.  I then went to work for various software companines including owning my own. I taught various computer courses at Baker College of Cadillac and North Western Michigan College (Cadillac). I retired from ISS (Internet Security Systems in Atlanta - now IBM) as their Chief Technology Architect and Manager of Database Services in June of 2006.

I received my amateur license in November of 2011 sat for all three tests in one morning, was surprised at how non technical tests have become compared to what they looked like in the 60's.

I have a Kenwood TS-590S. For keys I have an SKCC key by LNR, a Schuenemann Einhebel (single paddle) and a Vibroplex Original Deluxe that I alternate between. I won the Vibroplex by placing second in the FISTS cumulatives event. If you are interested in making QSO's longer that a quick number exchange check out the FISTS cumulatives.  The icon at the top of the page shows no mike, but I actually do use a mike, rarely, but on occasion I will. To me CW is much more fun and challenging, I don't need 1500 watts to DX.
 
My primary photo, is a picture of me holding the Vibroplex Original Deluxe that I won. I like this key so much that I sold my Blue Racer. The picture of the dogs are my assistants,  they are Doxi-Poos (Dachshund and Poodle both miniatures).  They like to sit in my lap during QSO's and render assistance by correcting my sending errors. One cat has been added to the mix here.
 
I am now retired and living in Dahlonega, Ga.
My wife and I eat a whole food plant based diet - please check out the following video for some enlightment on the subject
