I was born in 1951 and have lived my entire life in New Orleans, Louisiana. I graduated from Louisiana State University with a degree in Electrical Engineering and am married with two children. I have been in the construction business fror more than 40 years and in my spare time I am a state Senator.

My interest in ham radio began before I was in high school. For one reason or another I never did get licensed but was always an enthusiastic SWL. Finally, in the summer of 2009 my son and I took the license exams and became licensed. Call me a late bloomer! In November 2009 I upgraded to Amateur Extra status.

At the present time my conditions are a Yaesu FTdx5000, a Tokyo Hy-Power HL-1.5KFX, and a homebrew Carolina Windom at about 35' high. I use a Palstar AT2KD tuner. I usually operate HF SSB and the digital modes.

I have now started to work satellites; my setup is a pair of FT-991s controlled by HRD Satellite. My antennas are M2 LEO through SSB LNAs and the rotator is a G-5500. 

My other hobbies are sailing, fishing, hunting, and, of course, politics.

I have given up trying to convince my wife of the beauty of a multi-band Yagi and am totally satisfied with my Windom!
