New to Amateur Radio...but not new to radio!

I first became interested in radio as a teenager playing with a 5 band Realistic radio with a scrap piece of wire wound around the telescoping antenna and running out my bedroom window and up to a gutter.  I was amazed what I could hear in the wee hours with careful tuning.  After High School I studied Electronics at a Technical School and received my FCC First-Class Commerical License in 1975.  Shortly after that I went to work as a Communication Technician for the City of Nashville. I returned to school studying Electrical Engineering and later Computer Science. I went to work for the State of Tennessee in 1985 as a Radio Systems Analyst and held that position for 30 years.

After retiring from the state in 2014 I thought I was through with radio...and glad of it!  A totally unexpected result of retirement, I found that teenage joy and interest in radio returning. I don't have the old Realistic 5 band, but do have a very nice new Icom IC-7200 that works much better. I spend a lot of time doing FT8 on 20 and 40 meters. Hope to see you there.

Special thanks to my fellow worker and friend of 40 years, W4AEE, for all of his help and advice getting me up and running.
