I first became interested in amateur radio in 2013 as an avenue for community service. I took a Technician exam prep class and took my exam in December 2014, and then self-studied and took my General and Amateur Extra exams on the same day in February 2014. My first radio was an icom ID-51 handheld. It took a while to figure out how to use the local FM repeaters. In November 2014 I purchased an ID-5100 and set it up as a base station with a Diamond X-300 antenna mounted on the chimney of the house. Great move! Now I can hit the repeater in Stone Mountain and am regularly listening and making contacts on Reflector 30. Also now we have a DSTAR repeater here in Fayette County, so QSO's with my HT are now possible.

I am a member of the Fayette County Amateur Radio Club. In February 2016 I began working on setting up an HF station at my QTH. I bought a Flex-6500 and am running a Diamond W-8010 multiband dipole configured in an inverted V.

My vocation is airline pilot. I started out in the military. My undergrad degree is in aeronautical engineering from the U.S. Air Force Academy, and I was an officer for approximately eight years in the Air Force flying transports and VIP airlift. I have now been with Delta Air Lines for 28 years. I currently fly the Airbus 330.
