My amateur radio interests are on all bands. I seem to enjoy 2, 6 and 10 meters the best. I am always interested in talking with people that have a common sense technical knowledge of BASIC circuitry, because it is here where new applications can be discovered and applied. I have taught electronics to high school students for many years. When you have to answer those rediculous questions over and over again, it is then that you really must have an in depth understanding of the basics.

I have taught at Concord High School, Concord, NH. This was, incidentally, the home of Christa McAuliffe, the ill fated teacher in space. I knew her and we were friends.

My favorite bands are 6, 2, 220, 440, and 1296.  I enjoy both FM and sideband.... digital not so much yet.

Communications with satellites is also an interest. I try to add a new band about once every few years. I have recently completed construction of a portable 10 GHz station. Good luck to all my amateur contacts!

I am now active on HF. I find its really a lot of fun. I am just working 80, 40, 20, 17, 15 and 10m. Occasionally I operate 10 GHz., lasers, and LEDs. Its slow going.

(2/5/14 update) Lately now I am trying for worked all states on 6 and 10 meters, These would be my first WAS awards. I'm sure it'll take a while to get those last one or two states. Got to keep searching for that rare opening.... who knows. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. 73 all!!

(8/15/15 update)  Recently purchased a Baofeng UV5RA piece of Chinese junk.  What an amazing piece of junk HT it is.  I'm at the ocean visiting, and if it accidently falls into the water, who cares.  Its not waterproof so it'll be gone forever.                 

Am starting to work with digital circuits now and its impressive how many chips are out there and what they can do.  Soon there'll be a whole HT in a wristwatch format. Mark my words, it'll be just a few years.  Am developing an LED communications system with AF1T.  We already have communicated 1500 feet.  The receiver, made from really cheap parts, is so sensitive that it can respond to the light of one bright star.  Next we will go to about 3 miles, then we'll go mountain top to mountain top.  It will work!  The LED's are of the three watt size, but bigger ones are already out there.  They are so powerful that you have to heat sink them and always protect them from this and that, then they work real well.  Must be red in color and used only at night. They are way easier to use then lasers because they are much easier to aim at the receiver.   73s to all again.

(1/11/17 update) I have recently received a drone for Christmas.  Its a pretty good one with gps, gyroscopic camera control, etc.  I don't really care about the camera, but am looking forward to stringing up a fishing line with it, over the top of trees and helping my amateur friends put up high dipoles with heavier rope hauled up by the fishing line.  I know its doable, but must sharpen my pilots proficiency first.  Perhaps I'll even remove the camera permanenty do it.
