Received my first ticket on April 1, 2010 after being a SWL for 50 years. I'm retired following a 35-year career as a electrical engineeer (BS/MS EE - Purdue University) and engineering division manager with the US Navy.  My other activities include woodworking, working on computers, watching team sports involving a ball, fishing, and watching four grandsons grow up. I'm active in both the Daviess County Amateur Radio Club (KC9SFL) and the Vincennes Old Post Amateur Radio Society (W9EOC):

I'm a semi-regular on the Over the Hill Gang net weekdays at 1430Z to 1530Z on 14.321 - stop in and say hello.

Preference is Logbook of the World for QSLs, but will send you a QSL card if one is received - SASE or Green Stamps NOT required for either USA or DX contacts.  I also QSL via the Bureau, eQSL, QRZ.com, ClubLog.org, and HRDLog. 

Hope to meet you on the bands.








Note: if the chart below indicates that I am on the air using an FT-2000 (which I don't own),

then I am likely NOT on the air.  HRD software's "demo" mode indicates an FT-2000.
