AUGUST 2013 @ HOME QTH
US Navy Retired (1979-1999). Aviation Fire Control Technician (AQ). I received my Tech License (KD4QBU) in 1991 while stationed aboard the USS America, Norfolk, Virginia. While on the USS America I had the opportunity to work in the Navy MARS shack during my spare time. While on cruise you could always catch me in the evening as the voice of NNN0CRZ. I enjoyed providing phone patches between the crew and their families back stateside. That was before the days of satellite phones and e-mails. I passed the Extra exam including Code October 2001 and currently hold the call sign N3CAL. I'm a Volunteer Examiner for both the ARRL and W5YI groups. Hope to catch you on the bands some time. 73 de N3CAL.
