Ham Member Lookups: 4000

 

Thank you for your interest in my station.  If we've had a QSO, thanks so very much for making contact.  I QSL 100% for contacts and all SWLs upon request.  Please let me know if you need a card by postal mail; otherwise I will use eQSL.com. 

I am a Certified Emergency Manager (CEM) and am the Executive Director of the Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Response Association (DERA) an international association of groups and individuals active in all phases of disaster preparedness, emergency management, response and recovery. DERA's club callsign is N3DAK, and we would welcome you as a member.  More at Web site: http://www.disasters.org.

I am author of the book Disaster Emergency Communications, now in its third edition, and available through most bookstores and Amazon. 

I am also the Executive Vice President for the Center for Preparedness and Training, a Denver, Colorado institution which provides emergency preparedness training and exercises to government, business and industry. More at Web site: http://www.cpti.us.

I retired after more than 40 years of federal service, most recently as Disaster Emergency Communications (DEC) group supervisor for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).  Currently, I am the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) liaison officer to FEMA for Colorado ARES.

Previously, I taught Political Science at Aims Community College, where I specialized in American Government, State and Local Affairs. I was also a faculty member for the University of Phoenix, teaching classes in government, ethics and management.

I became a SWL in 1954 and was first licensed as a Novice in 1962 as WN4EYA.   I became a Conditional in 1963 (WA4EYA), a General in 1971, an Advanced in 1997 (N3DAK), and an Extra in 2000.  Thanks so much to my Elmers Joe Mullinax, W4CCU/SK, Tenny Freck, W4WL/SK and Bob Dockery, WD4CNZ.  I wouldn't have made it (in ham radio or life in general) without their help, encouragement and friendship. I am guided daily by their love for amateur radio and their dedication to the highest priciples of ethics and exemplary practices in everything big and small.

Most of my current ham activity involves disaster preparedness training and support missions in developing nations. I've deployed to 23 time zones on emergency missions and wish I could have done a better job on every one of them. If you are interested in this kind of international service please contact DERA (www.disasters.org) or the Foundation for Amateur International Radio Service (www.fairs.org) as there is need for dedicated ham volunteers that exceeds my ability to describe.

At home, I enjoy JT65 on 160 and 10 meters and FSK441 for meteor bounce on 6 meters in addition to CW and PSK-31 on any open band.

I also volunteer to support radio astronomy projects at the Little Thompson Observatory (www.starkids.org) in Berthoud, Colorado and am an active member of the Society of Amateur Radio Astronomers (www.radio-astronomy.org) and Edge of Space Sciences (www.eoss.org).

My other interests include photography, history, philosophy and cultural anthropology.

My wife, Kathryn, is a retired college professor who specializes in the works of Jane Austen. I enjoy putting her in touch with other Austenites over the radio whenever third-party rules allow it.

American Radio Relay League (ARRL); Disaster Preparedness & Emergency Response Association (DERA); International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM); Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA); Southern Appalachian Mineral Society (SAMS); Colorado Operation Lifesaver (CO-OL) Boulder Amateur Radio Club (BARC);Colorado Emergency Management Association; Wisconsin Emergency Management Association; Western Carolina Amateur Radio Society; Rocky Mountain Radio League; Sons and Daughters of the Radio Pioneers;Denver Radio Club; Northern Colorado Astronomical Society; Little Thompson Science Foundation; National Institute for Amateur Radio of India; Radio Society of Great Britain, and the Society of Amateur Radio Astronomers.
