"Canine Pedestrian Remote/Portable"- Gypsy,left calling CQ,Brandy and Tahnee counterpoises, right.

I was licensed as a Tech in 1983, and later earned my General Class ticket. My first rig was a used Century 21, fifty watts CW only.

I also enjoyed Packet Radio back in the pre-internet days. (PHOTO: Portable Packet station with a Tandy Model 100 Laptop, which still works, a PacCom TNC and an old Icom 2m HT. Now I can use the Kenwood TH-D7A HT for emergency packet operation with any laptop).

For the past six years I have been working barefoot, 100 watts with a Kenwood TS-2000 and the TH-D7A HT as a link, operating mostly "Remote Base Portable" via the TS2K SKY COMMAND option. You might hear me calling CQ and using "Remote/Base Canine Pedestrian Portable" (HI!). That is because I am usually walking my dogs in the park using the TH-D7A as a link to my remote base station. I have made countless DX contacts while walking the dogs in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. My most noteable recent contact was with T32C, Christmas Island 2011 DXPEDITION, on 12 and 15 meters. More often than not, the operator on the other end gets a kick hearingbarking dogs QRMfrom the park.

My antenna farm is comprised of a High Sierra HF mobile antenna mounted on my roof with radials (see above), and a Diamond TriBand 70cm/2m/6m verticle, for the audio and packet between the TS2K and TH-

D7A. (picture below)

I have been an artist/painter since the age of 12, and paint in oils using traditional methods and subject matter ( see my work on Facebook). I am a recently retired TESOL teacher from the NYC Department of Education where I taught English As A Second Language to adult immigrants for 26 years.
