My first experience in the world of amateur radio was while attending the annual "Boy Scouts of America, Jamboree On-The-Air", which I first attended in 1993 at the Rodney Boy Scout Reservation in Northeast, Maryland. It was from that moment that I caught the bug and soon after this event, in March of 1994, I was then able to obtain my original Technician's Class license. I took my first test at the Franklin Institute Museum, in my hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with the support of the Phil-Mont Mobile Radio Club and its members. My first call sign issued by the FCC was "N3RPW". Shortly after obtaining my first amateur radio license, I also became the first Eagle Scout in my troop in over 75 years; a set of life lessons that I continue to carry with me to this very day...

My primary career focus throughout the years has been in the information technologies and communications field.  In addition to my full-time career, I have also served for more than 20 years, in several communities, as a firefighter and emergency medical technician.

I continue to remain active on various bands and modes as well as owning and maintaining an analog FM repeater system with IRLP, EchoLink, and AllStar Link nodes, as well as HF/6-Meter/2-Meter/70-CM remote bases.  While I really enjoy experimenting with the latest FM analog and digital modes, my current passion in the hobby has turned towards working DX and the HF bands as well as some satellite work.  While working the bands from my home QTH is exciting, I've spent a great deal of time and effort building my mobile station, which consists of an Kenwood TM-D710GA, TS-480HX with a Scorpion SA-680 screwdriver antenna and a specially modified Motorola CDM1550LS+ for 220 MHz and I am having a blast with it...

Thank you for your interest and time in learning more about me, I look forward to chatting with you on the air again soon but for now, 73 and we'll catch you on down the log!  Also, feel free to follow me on APRS as well: W2GLD-9.
