Hello All,


I am currently working as an Engineering Manager at Robert Bosch in Plymouth MI.  I have been in the hobby since 1984 in Portland High School.  Ralph Burch W8LCU (SK) and the Ionia County Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ICARES) group elmer'ed me during my high school years. I went to Michigan State University for Materials Science.  While there, I was a member of MSU ARC from 1985 to 1990 (W8SH).  The Trustee was Gerald (Jerry) Park W8QS (SK), who provided many hours of service to maintain the club and it's membership.  

After MSU, I attended University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign to earn a Masters in Metallurgical Engineering.  While there, I was a member of the amateur radio club from 1990 to 1992 (W9YH).



I enjoy casual operating on the 160, 80 and 40 meter bands.  Often checking into nets and contacting special event stations.

My primary rig is a Kentwood-TS830S with an Elecraft KX3 transceiver for portable operations.


I enjoy chats with local hams either at home or while in the vehicle.  I use a Yaesu FTM-100D for both home and mobile operation and a Yaesu VX-5 Handitalkie for portable operation.


I have a 212' V-beam antenna for HF.  It's apex is about 40' with the ends at 10'.  It is fed with 300 ohm latter line, hooked to a 1:1 Balun and fed into the shack with 400 max coax.

Clubs and Activities

I am a member and current President of the South Lyon Area Amateur Radio Club (SLAARC)

We are supporting the creation of a new regional event, the Great Lakes HamCon - Great Lakes Amateur Radio Association (GLARA)
