Hello Fellow Hams!
You may view my amateur radio webite at: http://www.qsl.net/n/n7eku I'm just starting it, so it is a bit basic now, but I will add more to it as I go along.
I am from Washington State, and grew up in the Bellevue and Issaquah area. I spent many years living and working at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington -- a small university town in the Palouse Hills region of Eastern Washington bordering the state of Idaho.
I've always been interested in making things with my hands, and discovering things in nature and the world. I remember, at an early age, always wanting to explore and experiment and to see how things worked. I was always ready for trips to the library where I could browse all the science, nature, craft, and radio books and check out some to take home. I earned my Webalos Merit Bage in electronics when I was in grade school. My instructor for the badge was a great guy who showed me how to solder properly and got me started on learning the basics of electricity. I still remember the great Scout Master we also had who would inspire us with all sorts of fun science demonstrations.
In junior highschool I started building radios from kits and from the ARRL books and studying antennas for SWL. In highschool, my best friend became a ham and inspired me to apply too. I took my Novice and Technician exam at the same time in 1981 and passed both to receive my callsign N7EKU. At that time, I was working for SGC electronics in Bellevue, Washington and had great fun there with all the engineers and assemblers. I remember the president of the company, Pierre Goral, was quite a friendly and interesting person.
Seemed I didn't have much time for radio once I started college, and now in my working years I finally have time to enjoy more of my hobbies. I really enjoy constructing small projects and am doing my best to improve my electronics knowledge and design experience. I am now re-learning my CW code so I will be fast enough.
All the best and 73,
