     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.
