Whiskey Three Echo Xray
I was first licensed as KN2UZI in 1958 at the age of 15. I enlisted in the NAVY after graduating high school and trained in aviation electronics flying in P2V Netunes and P3A Orions as a radio operator in the Pacific at the beginning of the Vietnam war. After discharge I entered college and graduated from Cornell University as a veterinarian. Most of my career was involved as a laboratory animal veterinarian which culminated in being a co-owner of a medical device business. I am fully retired at this point and am involved in voluntary work including assisting retired folks with computer needs, serving on a retirement community board, and supporting the computer and sound system at my church.
I received my Extra class license at the FCC office in Washington D.C. in March 1974 and obtained the call of K4JYP. After moving from the northern Virginia in 1976, I was very fortunalte to receive my current call W3EX.
Retirement has provided more time to devote to amateur radio which is a real gift. I like operating SSB on 40-10. Enjoy some of the digital modes on occasion. Have recently gotten involved with D-STAR using DVAP and ID-31 in house and ID-5100 in the mobile. I volunteer with our local RACES/ARES group being recently appointed to the Emergency Coordinator for that group. I am also a USCG Auxiliary member and my amateur station is licensed as a USCG Auxiliary HF Facility.
I enjoy operating my station remotely and have a powerpoint presentation available on how I do it. Let me know if you would me to email the presentation to you.
