I was first licensed in 1965 (at age 15) as WN8SLF. I became WA8WBX in 1967 and KC8PH in 1981. I obtained my Extra class ticket in 1987 (NV8T), and have had the N8GL call since 1996.

I am a casual operator; not into contesting, but I do enjoy the occasional DX contact. 40 meters is probably my favorite band, but I work 10 – 75, and have 2 meter and 70cm FM and DSTAR capability.  I work DSTAR through a DVAP with a Raspberry Pi, and usually monitor Reflectors 30C or 24C. I also work PSK31 and other digital modes including FreeDV on HF. 

I am retired from  Kettering University in Flint, Michigan, where I worked for 25 years. I worked in the IT department as an electronics technician; specializing in classroom AV technology. I also managed and maintained two UHF business radio repeaters and about 60 HT’s.

Although no longer active, I have a strong interest in aviation. I hold a Commercial pilot certificate with instrument rating, and have owned a couple of Cessna 150’s and a Buckeye Powered Parachute ultralight.


A stormy afternoon in Ortonville - luckily we missed the worst of this one! My little MA5B is still hanging in there!


My MA5B survived the big ice storm of Christmas week 2013.



This is my pal Travis - who loves to sit in my "command" chair when I am not using it!


One of my other retirement hobbies - trying to teach myself how to play this thing! (Roland Atelier AT-80)

I am making some progress, now that I have time to play every day.
