Ham Member Lookups: 19188


Licensed since 1964. Been there, done that, got my T shirt. wink


My father was a WWII Signal Corp radio operator and taught me the code when I was 11 or 12 years old. We would send messages across the room using a flashlight with a "flasher button". I then played with old short wave receivers I picked up on the street during cleanup week. One or two actually worked well enough to copy NSS, a CW "ship to shore" commercial station, just listening to thumps in the speaker because the old 30's vintage radios did not have a  bfo. Then I obtained an old Philmore receiver that had a bfo and I could copy ham CW transmissions. I guess that is what finally prompted me to get a ticket. I wanted to be one of them!
I retired in December 2012 as a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator for the State of NJ at the Veterans Home in Menlo Park. Still wondering how I ever had time to work!

I work 99% CW and digital modes.
