Thank you for stopping by my station.
I first became interested in amateur radio while working for Nolan (Stu) Walker, W8ADQ, at his store, Walker Radio, when I was in high school in the late sixties. My father bought my first SW receiver, a Hallicrafter WR-1000, in 1966. This really sparked my interest in Ham radio. I was also encouraged by Thomas Filicky of Canal Fulton, Ohio who taught electronics at Oakwood High School, Canton Ohio.
I have a Cushcraft Vertical for 40 and 80 M and three inverted vee antennas at various orientations. Each of the dipoles are about 35 feet high for use on 75, 40 and 20 meters. I also use the mini-beam ( Cushcraft MA5B) with a short roof mount tower, by Glen Martin.
I am also now into ( DStar) which is a very interesting aspect of the hobby!
My portable station consistes of various dipole antennas, and the( Buddiepole system). This station can be set-up and on the air (HF and VHF) in minutes.
In addition to my own business,( Staley Management Services) I also teach business and management courses for several local universities.
I have been married to my wife (Kim) for over 43 years. We have two wonderful boys who are now grown. Unfortunately, the three of them have shown absolutely no interest in this great hobby.
I am a member of the American Radio Relay League.
Hope to work you on the air!
