So if you are looking at my QRZ page I'm sure you have seen the photo of me with my tire in the air. That is where my entry in to Ham Radio started. One of the members of my offroad club (Desert Dawgs) was a ham and he suggested that we get our Tech license, so we did! This was in 1998. We were all very happy with the 2 meter radios we installed in our offroad vehicles but I always knew there was more. Fast forward to 2010. I am now married to the most wonder woman in the world (Gail, KJ6CPH). Gail was losing her job with the Los Angeles Unified School District and had a chance to get her dream job at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where she graduated from. Now mind you I am a UPS big rig driver and I work in the Los Angeles area. She got the job and moved to a small apartment in the SLO area. She commuted every weekend down south to visit me. We decide to buy a home in the SLO area which would be our retirement home. Our new home is on 16 acres outside of Arroyo Grande, and I know I am going to need something to do after I retire. What else but Ham Radio! I started studying in January of 2014 and took my General exam in April 2014 and decide to keep going. I took the Extra exam the next month.

I am retired from UPS as a feeder driver after 26 years!
