Ham Member Lookups: 2068


Welcome to my QRZ page! My radio name is "Del".

I was first licensed in Indiana in 1961, a sixteen year old high school sophomore, as KN9DFI (Novice), then K9DFI (General). That summer I met Penny - the love of his life - at a Martinsville (IN) Amateur Radio Club picnic (Penny's father was W9GHE, later becoming W4FOZ when he moved to Huntsville, AL).

Having let my license expire in 1968, and after a 19-year absence from amateur radio, I regained my Novice license in 1987 and began upgrading, becoming K9DEL and eventually W4DEL after "finally" marrying Penny in 2009 and moving to Georgia.

My working life consisted mainly of various careers within Ford Motor Company at Indianapolis (IN), starting as a machine operator, serving a 4-year Machine Repair & Machinist apprenticeship, attending night classes at Indiana University - Purdue University at Indianapolis (IUPUI), and eventually moving into Manufacturing Engineering where I served my last 20 years with Ford. My manufacturing engineering career took me on many journeys to places around - mostly the eastern half of - the United States.

At present, I'm Secretary of Newton County (GA) Radio Club. I was honored as the Club's "Ham of the Year" in both 2013 and 2014. I also keep quite busy as an active member of  the Newton County and Georgia ARES, RACES and Skywarn organizations, the Georgia SSB Association, and the American Radio Relay League (ARRL). I am also an active Volunteer Examiner (VE) with the ARRL VEC.

In 2015 I was appointed ADEC-Digital, Metro Atlanta ARES, serving Newton & Rockdale Counties.

You can find me most mornings at 9:00 a.m. (EST) on 3995 kHz participating in a roundtable discussion with the Georgia Geritol Net.
