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.

After nearly 20 years of being a PBX technician, I am now a (FT3) technician for Time Warner Cable...based out of Niagara Falls, NY.
