Me pretending to fly a C54View from my deck looking east - Atlantic ocean

                                   Me in a C54 Candy Bomber                           The view of the Atlantic from my deck

Born & Raised in Alton. Ill and went to SIU-C (southern Ill - Carbondale) 1970-74. While my degree was in electronics and engineering - I never used the electronics anytime soon.

I will often be found working the 80-10m band with my Yaesu FT-920 and Buckmaster OCF dipole. Being 150 yards west of the Atlantic ocean means no metal antennas and no towers! I also use a Heil mike and get very good audio comments when using it. Power is just 100 watts.

Hobbies: owned a Piper PA-28 Cherokee- private pilot, Harley FLSTC 2000 Softail, jet ski, kayaking when not working at selling real estate here.

 Moved to the Outer Banks (Kitty Hawk, Nags Head) on the Outer Banks of N.C. which is just a sliver of sand surrounded by water back in 2001. The salt air and strong winds are death on antennas here so you mostly see wire dipoles. I sell real estate, let me know if you need the help of a real estate agent.

2015 - Just got into DMR here on the outer banks. We have 4 repeaters that cover the area and HT use is pretty much useable over the whole Outer Banks.

I am using a CS700 HT which can do amazing things from my deck and a Motorola XPR 4550 which is my base station.  Recently added a XPR 6550 from Motorola and use it much of the time now. Update: I have added the Shark RF Open Spot and got a new Motorola XPR 7550 which is a really nice well made radio. I can be found on Brandmeister talk group 3100 a lot.
