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 an Eagle Scout; a set of life lessons that I continue to carry with me to this very day...

I work professionally in the information technologies field; however, in addition to my full-time career, I have also served for more than 20 years in the emergency services field as a firefighter and emergency medical technician.

I continue to remain active on various bands and modes as well as owning and maintaining my 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.  You can also find me lerking about the DMR mode on BrandMeister "Michigan" and "Tac 317" talkgroups amongst a few others...

While working the bands from my home QTH is exciting, I've spent a great deal of time and effort building my mobile station as well, which consists of an Kenwood TM-D710GA, TS-480HX with a Scorpion SA-680 screwdriver antenna as well as an SharkRF openSPOT for DMR mode and I am having a blast with it... 

As for my home station, this consists of a Kenwood TS-2000, TS-480SAT, and a TS-590SG 70th Anniversary Edition as well as a pair of SharkRF openSPOT's for DMR mode; there are also several other radio, antennas, and assorted accessories as well.

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.
