Ham Member Lookups: 1666


First license K3FII Oct. 1963, QRT in mid 70s ( Graduate School and kids). Got back on in 1980 as General with present call. Now Extra Class.

Have BM (1972) and MM (1976) in Conducting and Opera from The University of the Arts. From 1968 taught music conducted various organizations and worked as an Assistant Conductor for the Opera Company of Philadelphia for 10 years. In a weak moment I decided to go to Law School -JD from Temple U. Law School (1985)

Originally a woodwind player (mostly flute and oboe, actually I played the accordion from age 8 but I try to keep that a secret)  but now usually play viola and organ/piano/harpsichord.

Work as Musical Director and Conductor for several orchestras and opera companies and Music Director and Organist for large ( 14,000 members) Roman Catholic Church in Philadelphia, teach privately and help out at several schools. Well known expert in liturgical music as well as opera. 

Also practice a little law but try to stay away from lawyers and judges. I pull myself out but they drag me back in. 

Other interests: Physics and Astronomy, History and Theology

Run TS 940s, FT 897, Hallicrafter HT 37 with an SX110 and a DX 20 with a Hallicrafters S 118 ( my Novice Station from 1963) thru various verticals and dipoles. and G5RV.  Also use an HP 3586c Selective Level Meter for LF VLF and an IC R7000 and a Kenwood R 5000

Languages: German (good), Italian (good), French (bad accent but read it well), Spanish ( always confuse it with Italian when I try to speak), Latin, Biblical Greek and Middle Egyptian (the language of 1200 BC) The next one will be Sanskrit.


Memberships: Like Groucho Marx I wouldn't want to join a group that would have me as a member but will confess to :

ARRL, SKCC, Rittenhouse Astronomical Society, the PA and Federal Bar and the Knights of Columbus.


Married to Lady Di for 45 years, three daughters and 4 grandchildren, alas none of them Hams but I am still working on the grandkids.

And I use a J37 straight key. I am not a snob about these things, it is just that it is the only way I can enjoy God's Gift to Western Civilization- Morse Code.

AND IF YOU ARE A BABY BOOMER, WENT TO CATHOLIC SCHOOL OR WERE ALIVE FOR THE KENNEDY ASSASINATION ( even if you weren't) READ MY BOOK   "63-64"   available at Lulu.com.  (you can also find it on Amazon and Barnes and Noble and IBooks but buy it directly from the publisher because I get a bigger slice of the sale).
