I am 66 years old and have been retired since 2007 after working 20 years for BMW of North America (the German Automobile Co.) regional and national headquarters located in New Jersey. After I retired from BMW I worked part time for Smith&Wesson as a firearms instructor and also had my own consulting Co., firearms related business and firearms compliance consulting.

In 2013 I got interested in Ham radio so I purchased a RL Drake 2b receiver and started listening.   I did this for three months and I was hooked, I just had to get my license so I spent a month studying and in June of 2013 I got my Technician license followed by my General license in July.

In May of 2014 after studying for a month I passed my Extra exam.

My station consists of a Ten Tec Orion II connected to a 72” end fed wire up at 50 feet. I also have a set of RL Drake B Twins, a set of Kenwood 599a twins and a Kenwood TS-480 SAT. The antenna is tunable from 160 to 10 and currently I am only transmitting at 100 watts.  For VHF I have Yaesu FT2900R and for UHF and VHF a Kenwood TW-4100A connected to a homebrew ground plane, for mobile I use a Yaesu VX5R HT

I enjoy DX’ing and rag chewing on 40, 20, 17, 15 and 12 meters and can be found most every afternoon on  7.185 on the NUTS, BOLTS and SCREWS NET (www.nbsnet7185.com).  In the late afternoon and late evening I can be found roaming the bands.  I also monitor the Monson repeater 147.105 and the Mt Tom repeater 146.940 give me a call almost anytime we will most likely connect. 

My wife Barbara and I make our home on quiet street in Wilbraham, MA.

My other hobbies are Fly fishing and off-roading and firearms.
