My interest in Amateur Radio reflects back to my High School days. I had a physics teacher that encouraged me, and indicated his interest in getting a "ticket" as well. It was not until I was out of High School that I ran into a Ham Operator at my place of work who held a Technician License. He invited me over to his place, and took me up to the attic which was lined with homebrewed equipment. I was hooked! My teacher never did get his ticket, but this gentleman at work introduced me to another Ham, who became my tutor and gave me the Novice test in September of 1961. Shorty Honing was his name, and other than an Elmac AF67, every thing he had was homebrew.

I became very active in Dxing and eventually RTTY, SSTV with a Robot, and really got involved with repeaters and vhf/uhf in general. I well remember my original Motorola boat anchor, and was able to"gimmick" it to put it on the Amateur Frequencies and into a J-Pole at 80', and the thrill of the first succesful contact 70 mile away.

I originally hail from the state of Iowa where I was raised on a 360 Acre farm. I left the farm after High School and went to work in Cedar Rapids for a corn products plant and spent 15 years with them. Then in 1969 I made my move to Colorado. I am the father of five children (3 Girls and 2 boys). They are all doing well with three of them still here in Colorado, one in Iowa, and one in Texas. My Wife's name is Stella and is a really fine person liked by everyone she meets. She drove a school bus for 23 years, so has to be very patient and understanding!

I am a retired electrician now. I spent 35 yrs at the trade. I took my apprenticeship in Cedar Rapids Iowa, and then moved to Denver where I continued my career out of LU 68 IBEW.
