Ham Member Lookups: 1776

 

  I got started in radio with a pair of CB walkie talkies from my Aunt and Uncle for Christmas at age 10. My Dad's friend Leo Bennett introduced me to Ham Radio shortly after and studied under Vince Cox,WB6HUN, and received my Amateur Novice license WN6JRW in 1974. My transmitter was homebrew from the ARRL Handbook. It featured a 6gk6 oscillator and a 6146 final, the receiver was a Drake 2B with Q-multiplier, my antenna was an inverted vee at 40ft.

   My first job while still a Senior in Highschool was as a CB radio installer for Lou Marvin WA6CAW, owner of Marcom Communications. During that time I studied for my General Telephone Second Class license and passed the test the same day I took and passed my Advanced Class Amateur Radio License upgrade! I couldn't wait to get to repairing Two-Way radio equipment. My first technician job was with Mobile Communications in 1981. I have been a Two-Way Radio Technician since then, currently employed with Dial Communications in Rancho Cucamonga CA.

  I am active on HF using QRP Homebrew and commercial equipment, enjoy CW, and studying propagation especially Sporadic E on 6 and 10 meters.My recent  additions to the ham shack have been vintage tube type radios primarily from the 70"s.
