  Prior callsigns: KI4FYR (June 2004 to October 2011) and K4MWE (November 2011 to February 2015).

I took up amateur radio after retiring from NC State University as a mechanical engineering prof. I had wanted to become a ham ever since teaching high school physics back in the 1950s, when many of my students were building radio equipment. I now help out with two different VE teams and am a member of three local amateur radio clubs. My wife Julie (KT4JR) also took up the hobby.

We use an Elecraft K3 AND ICOM 706MKIIGin our shack. The Elecraft K3 is linked to an Elecraft KA 500 amplifier, an Elacraft KAT500 high power tuner and the main antenna is a HyGain AV-640 multi-bandvertical in the back yard which is about 7 meters tall, as well as other antenna as listed below.

Our ICOM 706MKIIG can access either of two 2-meter attic antennas, a 2-meter 1/4 wave vertical and a 2 meter cubical quad , the K3 and our ICOM unit can also use a 160 meter QSO King, a 1/4-wave 6-meter vertical and a 6-neter yagi that was built from copper pipe and a 80-meter end fed wire antenna.

I now transmit using the phone and PSK31 and RTTY modes.
