Ham Member Lookups: 4614


I was first licensed as a Novice in 1968 at age 14. Back then the rules required it to be upgraded within two years. As a middle schooler I discovered girls and athletics and thus Amateur Radio had to be placed on hold, although I maintained my interest in shortwave listening throughout. 

I went on to a career in television broadcasting,  as a Chief Engineer, Director of Engineering,  and a consultant. I also taught preparatory classes for the 1st and 2nd class FCC commercial licenses. As many of my peers as well as the FCC personnel I dealt with in Broadcasting had Ham tickets,  I became interested again and became licensed in 1982. 

I "retired" in 1998 and I now own a small IT services company. I SWL and operate Amateur Radio from my home in Virginia and my beach house on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

My primary shortwave receiver is an RTL dongle and upconverter with homebrew preselectors and LNAs; used down to 10 kHz with excellent results.

My HF equipment consists of  Flex SDR 1000 and a Kenwood TS 950 SDX. I have 2 Amp Supply LK 500ZC amplifiers. 

My antennas currently consist of a N4MXZ Zapper doublet and an inverted L, of which about 82 feet are vertical. I generally operate 160, 75, and 40. My SWL antenna is an 830 foot off center fed dipole at about 20 ft high.

I recently received authorization to operate on 630 and 2200 meters.  Since I have 19 acres to play with here, I hope to have some  success on these bands.
