I obtained my novice license, WN6TEE, in Manhattan Beach, California in 1972. My first station consisted of a Johnson Adventurer, which I obtained on a "permanent loan" basis from one of my elmers, as well as a pair of brand new surplus Arc 5 receivers (one for 80M, and one for 40M) for which I paid a grand total of $20. I had just fininshed re-grinding approximately 150 FT-243 crystals for every few kilohertz of the novice bands, when the FCC decided we could use VFO's (Anybody need some novice crystals?)

After completing about half of an electrical engineering degree at El Camino College, I felt the call of the north, and moved to North Pole, Alaska, where the job of Chief Engineer of KJNP Radio, a 50,000 watt Christian broadcast station fell into my lap. I spent the next 17 years crawling around inside transmitters, as well as doing some radio announcing. I now work at Eielson Air Force Base, and do consulting work at HIPAS Observatory, an Aurora Research facility just outsideof Fairbanks, and operated by UCLA, where I still spend some of my time crawling around inside high power radio transmitters, as well as building ionosondes and ELF detection equipment.

I have written numerous articles for QST, QEX, and just about every other existing and defunct amateur radio publication. Most of these have been technical, with a couple of exceptions, my favorite being "Solder to Talk", a humorous piece about vintage AM operation, which appeared in Nov. '93 QST. I am a fanatic homebrewer, and CW freak. I enjoy all aspects of low band operation, and fiddle around with some 1750 meter operation as well as PSK31.

My latest literary offering, The Digital Storage Oscilloscope for Ham Radio is now available from ARRL in ebook form!
