Thank you for visiting my callsign information page.

 

I was licensed as a Novice in 1988, and have enjoyed Amateur Radio in its many forms ever since. Among the MANY facets of this hobby that I participate in, most of my time lately has been spent via CW, although I have made more QSOs with old-fashioned RTTY than ANY other mode.  I also enjoy contesting...slugging it out with the big guns in the Single Operator/Single Band (usually 10m) QRP categories.  I am the current record holder for the 2nd Call Area in several CQ contests for both 20 and 10 meters.

I am 100% QRP, and have been for the entire 29 years of being licensed.  The old adage that "Power is No Substitute For Skill" is without a doubt TRUE!  With QRP, I've earned Worked All Continents, Worked All States, DXCC, CQ WPX, as well as the many AMSAT awards I hold.

The Summer of 2017 has been the best of years for me...be it personally (marrying the woman of many dreams), amateur radio (TONS of 6 Meter activity...thanks to FT8 and MSK144 ), and professionally (moving up the food chain at work).  

After nearly 20 years of being a PBX technician, I am now a field technician for Spectrum/Time Warner Cable...based out of Niagara Falls, NY.

Now that life has become NORMAL again, time to finish all of the QRP rigs that need TLC here in the new mancave.

(PS: The NEW QTH is on Grand Island, NY...I will be updating my ticket any day now...hihi)
