I've dabbled in amateur radio on and off since the late 1950's. My first elmer was Ken Pfeiffer, W3AEN (SK). First gear was an Allied Radio Ocean Hooper regenerative receiver kit and a 80' long wire antenna at 30'. In 1959 I belonged to the Allegheny-Kiski Amateur Radio Association, the forerunner of Skyview Radio Society.
Gear today consists of a Yaesu FT-991, Icom IC-7000, LDG YT-1200 & IT-100 auto tuners, ICOM AH-4 remote auto tuner, Astron SS-30M power supply, SignaLink, MFJ-949e Deluxe Versa Tuner II, Yaesu FTM-400DR, Icom ID-51A D-Star HT, Yeasu 2900R, WOUXON KG-UVD1P 2m/440 HT, BAOFENG BF-888s 440 HT, Yeasu FT-101E 10m-160m (new in the box), FL-2100B amplifier (new in the box), FT-101 mobile mount (rare), SP-101PB, SP-101, Shure 444, 16' 6m-20m Shakespeare vertical, 23' Shakespeare 393 Marine HF SSB vertical, Eagle One 31' vertical, 80m dipole, 40m dipole, 20m dipole, 2m/440 17' Diamond X510HDM vertical, Solarcon I-MAX 2000 24' vertical and a 53' end fed wire. QTH is 1320'.
I operate from Florida, December thru March, as W3TLN/4.
I also hold a Restricted Radiotelephone Operator License.
I have a BS in Chemistry. Worked 37 years for a high tech alloy manufacturer as a chemist, last 18 years as the supervisor of laboratories. I'm now retired. I have a private pilots license but not current. I'm an avid RVer and spend the winter months in FL. I'm an artist and paint in oils. Below are some photos of my recent efforts. I enjoy walleye fishing and have made 37 fly-in floatplane fishing trips, starting in 1974, to northern Ontario and Quebec. I have an interest in astronomy, but that is currently a dormant hobby.
