Became a Ham in March of 1992, shortly after the no-code tech license became available. upgraded to general class March 2009, upgraded to extra Sept. 2011.
I had heard of amateur radio during my Jr. high years, and had at least become familiar with it during my military years. I was in the U.S. Army my MOS was 72B20 which is Communications Specialist, better known as a teletype operator. Later I was introduced to radio teletype. Tuning the transmitter with an ocilliscope was fascinating. Had some contacts with family via the MARS station that our unit provided to the Battalion and other units in our area. After my enlistment ended it was back home to Houston, Texas and work and trying to build a family.
Finally after several career changes ( couldn't find anything to hold my interest ) I had the pleasure of working with Harlon Sampley KA5IJI SK who reignited my interest in amatuer radio. My wife not to be left out also is a licensed ham, she choose not to tell me she was studying until about two days before the exam. She is not as active as in the beginning but hope her interest returns.
Also you may wonder why I use my middle name instead of my first name. It is quite simple my fathers name was also Harvey, our middle names were different so I was not a JR. any how my mother started calling me by my middle name Glen as not to confuse who she was yelling at LOL, after over fifty years of being called Glen I very seldom answer to my first name.
