For as long as I can remember I have been fasicinated by Radio. Starting life in the Buffalo, New York area I was transplanted to the Miami, Forida suburb known as Hollywood.  I learned I could DX my hometown station WKBW when I got homesick and other stations as well in fact one of them, WBT I would later work for. 

My 3 main interests have always been music, electronics and radio. After a 20 year career as a DJ, working for some really great stations, I exited radio to work in IT.

I grew up at a time when it was possible to easily repair radios, TV's etc. Our family's first color TV was a broken one purchased for $25 that I repaired with the help of a friend. Sadly today most electronics are disposable.  Now when they say "no user servicable parts inside" they really mean it!  When my HF rig needs repair there are fewer guys up to the task. I wouldn't even attempt it.  So as they used to say we are mostly "appliance operators".

My first after school job was at an electronics parts store where I worked for the first W4DXL, Bill Lando, a really great guy.  I was very lucky to have him as my first boss.

HF rigs currently consist of a Yaesu FT-950 and Yaesu FT-991.  I also have an assortment of VHF/UHF gear both DMR and D-Star. Hope to work you on the air soon!

 

December 2017 Shack update!

The old desk I have used for many years was nice with lots of space to store things.  However it wasn't Ham friendly.  I had a difficult time getting behind the radios to make cable changes.  I resolved to get an L shaped desk as kind of an audio-Ham-Computer center.  It's like having a big new toy and you know how we Ham's like toys!
