I was first licensed as WA5DFL in Oklahoma City in 1960 and assigned the call of WA2EIU after moving to NYC in 1964. My wife and I are presently living in Atlanta, GA (since 1993) while I am working as the Director of Educational Technology for the Lovett School (K-12) and Choirmaster/Organist for the Mount Vernon Presbyterian Church. I am also the trustee of School's Amateur Radio Club station KF4OVF.
My home station includes a TS440SAT transceiver with a R5, folded dipole and Tri-Band antennas. The backpacking/camping station includes a FT-817/Z-11 with a MP-1 and long wire antennas. ARES ready-bag includes a FT-90R radio with duel band mag-mount antenna. I am actively evolved in and support ARES, MARS and SATERN emergency service activities.
In addition to my amateur radio interest, I am rebuilding and installing a 4 manual Moller pipe organ in our Georgia home. With the addition of a Moller "Toy Counter" the instrument will be capable of playing both classical and theatre organ music. The MIDI interface will also allows a number of additional contemporary sounds to be played and acts as a "player" mechanism for the organ.
I enjoy teaching both computer programming and robotics in our computer science Department at our high school in Atlanta. Additionally I have been able to volunteer in a number of activities ranging from working with the homeless to assisting in the amateur radio communications effort in NYC during September 2001 disaster and Katrina shelter support in 2005.
I throughly enjoy being able to meet new people daily on my radios and sharing these experiences with my students. Following my experiences in NYC during the 9/11 disaster I realized the importance of being prepared to use our emergency communication skills to help others with a moments notice.
I believe that every amateur should not only be prepared for any emergency where communications will be needed, but be committed to sharing with others the excitement and satisfaction we experience in this rewarding hobby.
