Welcome, thanks for looking me up. The name that I prefer to be called is "Gene" and I am located in Oakton Virginia about 20 miles (32km) west of Washington D.C. I have been licenced since 1954, at age 14, (original call KN4HAE, then K4HAE). I am presently a retired Auburn University electrical enginer (1962/63) and was until retirement in 2005, a General Manager at the MITRE Corp. a not-for profit government systems engineering company where I still consult. I operate all bands CW/SSB and Digital modes (mostly PSK-31 and RTTY).  I enjoy fishing for Trout, Redfieh, Snook and Tarpon several months each year around Bokeelia on Pine Island Florida, near Ft. Myers on Florida's South West coast and I sometimes operate portable from this location.

My Rig is a Kenwood TS 2000.  My  antennas are simple, a 40 meter corner fed delta loop with the apex up about 80 feet (24m) and a center fed sloper for 80/160 meters up at 60 feet (18m). Both antennas are up in trees standing in the woods behind my home and above a small creek (ruisseau). With an old Nye Vicking matching network I am able to work all bands with these antennas, with best performance on 40 and 80 meters. I also have a 6m delta loop in my attic.  I will add power with an Ameritron AL-1200 up to 1500 watts when conditions are poor.

I earned my DXCC Honor Role in 1995 (now with 347countries). I also have my 5 band DXCC, RTTY DXCC, 17 meter, 12 meter, 30 meter DXCC (8 bands), and Challenge award. 

I speak french, enough to converse, mostly "je parle francaise" with my dog who is a Coton de Tulear and also speaks french.  I am also a Civil War historian and wrote a book called "Letters Home, Three Years under General Lee in the 6th Alabama Infantry". The book is based on a collection of letters from my Great Grand Uncle, Thomas S. Taylor who fought in the Civil War. It is availible by title on Amazon.com.

We have 3 daughters, 3 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren.

73's See you on the bands
