Ham Member Lookups: 7306

 

My QSL card from circa 1978 from Starbuck Minnesota when the Kenwood Twins, cassette tapes, and plaid flannel shirts were in their prime smiley

Born in 1961 an half hour before my twin brother Brent, N0ATR have been active in amateur radio since 1977. Brent and I shared a similar interest in radio from the start. First shortwave, next CB radio and then finally moving forward in 1977 getting our amateur radio licenses of which we owe a debt of gratitude to George Lord, W0GTX, SK, and the Runestone radio club in Alexandria MN, 25 miles north of our QTH. Hal Josephson and team ran excellent ham radio classes from Novice through Advanced..

Since completing my BA in Physics and MS in Electrical Engineering, I have been employed in the utility industry starting at Control Data Energy Management Systems Division, in Minneapolis, MN for 10 years, where I had the pleasure of working with some of the most gifted and creative engineers of my career.   Following the Siemens acquisition and utility deregulation, I moved on to the Mid-Continent Area Power Pool, aka MAPP, for 2+ years before moving on in 2000 to the full Independent System Operator side of the utility business at the Midcontinent Independent System Operator, MISO, in Indianapolis, IN as a Senior Technical Advisor in the IT Operations department.  In October 2015, I joined Arizona Public Service in Phoenix, AZ as a Principal IT Technical Advisor in the IT department. My wife and I are presently relocating to "7 land" over the next months.

Over the years, I've been mostly focused on chasing DX, but recently have been enjoying JT-65, working on my 5BWAS on JT-65. I've got 80, 40, and 20m done but HI and AK are still missing on 160 ( more late nights required to be invested :) the other bands are just "a matter of time and patience" :) now that the sunspot cycles are in favor 6M JT65 has been a tantalizing distraction from normal HF bands :)

I've been married since 1987 with two wonderful girls 24 and 22. Oldest daughter is at at Indiana University and youngest daughter is at St Louis University.

I prefer LOTW but also enjoy the old fashioned mail QSL for special occasions :)

I qsl 100% and appreciate every QSO.

Many Thanks and I look forward to our QSO's..

73's
