In my day job, I'm a software engineer who works on embedded software for robots used in e-commerce warehouses.

I got my Technician ham license in July 2015.  Soon afterwards I joined a fantastic club for getting elmering help, the Nashua Area Radio Club (N1FD), got my General and Extra licenses, became a Volunteer Examiner, and started helping to teach license classes for Technician, General, and Extra class licenses.

This is a picture of me when I started a previous job, about 2004.

This is a somewhat more recent picture, a self portrait taken with a kit cardboard pinhole camera on black & white 120-format film:

Rig: a Yaesu FT-890 and an ICOM IC-7300 running barefoot with RadioWavz 20m (more or less north-south, horizontal) & 40m (more or less east-west, inverted V) dipoles strung up in trees behind my house.

Portable rig: a Yaesu FT-60R with a whip or mag-mount antenna.

This is an earlier picture of my modest shack.  In the upper left is a Lafayette AM/FM/Short Wave radio from my youth.  (Which is how I got interested in amateur radio, but I never learned code or got a license.  But I will learn code soon, I hope!)  The old watch near the hand-held microphone is set to UTC.  The boom is just for a light.

My first QSL card has a picture of trees in autumn that I took in 2015 from the cafeteria behind where I used to work, off of Spit Brook Road in Nashua, NH:

My XYL is W1MSI.

My father is a retired University of Delaware farm manager.  I have to say that, whenever I hear the term "elmer" I think of a blacksmith who used to do work for him, Elmer Gallagher, who had a saying: "You could sell a mad dog if you kept him long enough."

73!
