Originally from Long Island, N.Y. I relocated to Florida in 1994.  I have been fooling around in radio communications since 1968 when I was 11 years old. I started with Citizen Band Radio back when a license was required. My dad bought me my very first C.B base radio from Lafayette Radio Electronics in Syosset N.Y. which was a Lafayette Comstat 23 Mark VI. Although Citizens Band Radio is a thing of the past with me, It was the foundation of my interest in the radio hobby and part of my radio memorabilia in my shack. Now, after 31 years of having my ham ticket I am still loving the hobby of communications and active just about every single day. I am also an avid Shortwave Listener and love tinkering with older shortwave receivers. One of my favorites is the Hallicrafters line. My latest project was the restoration of my S-40B receiver.

Two meter vertical, and a 100 foot end fed long wire for shortwave listening. Sometimes I use my Gap Titan DX for shortwave receiving also which works fantastic!

I enjoy SSB, but for me CW is my all time favorite mode of operation.

When I can find the time to get away from the rig, I also enjoy Amateur Astronomy, Model Railroading and playing mandolin. Photography also takes up a lot of my time as a hobby and business. Please visit my webpage at www.frankstaffaphotography.com

I have a loving understanding XYL who supports my hobbies and occasionally joins in. I also run a youtube channel which you can find under my callsign. I record shortwave radio signals and some HF, and when I find a good catch on the bands I add them to my channel on youtube. Feel free to stop by and check them out. Catch me evenings on 40 mtr phone and also 40 mtr cw. I have been collecting QSL cards for many many years, and my shack walls are full of cards from all over the world. I QSL100% to anyone who sends me a card. No SASE needed.
