My first interest in Amateur Radio started at the age of 13 (1960). I got the bug while listening to Amateur Radio operators (AM at that time) on 1940s vintage shortwave radios. I was first licensed as a Technician at the age of 15. Operated 6m AM on a hilltop in SW Pennsylvania until June 1965. At that time I move away from SW Pennsylvania and Amateur Radio. In the mid 70’s I purchased a Drake SPR-4 to somewhat keep in touch with the Amateur Radio world.
I had worked in the Electronics Industry for 30 + years. I am retired now. At the end of 2011, I got interest in SDRs and purchased a SoftRock receiver kit. This receiver renewed my interest in Amateur Radio. In 2012, a good friend of mine knew of my increased interest in Amateur Radio and encouraged me to rejoin the Amateur Radio community. I was licensed as a General in April 2013, but did not start operating until May 2014.
I operate mostly Digital Modes JT65-JT9. I like the challenge of making contacts around the world with 8-10w. Maybe my operation will switch to true QRP someday.
Thanks for taking the time to read my Bio page.
