​I was first licensed as WN9JBR in 1963 while in high school in Milwaukee, WI. I passed my General in Chicago on 22 Nov 1963 - the day JFK was assassinated. Hard to forget that day. My first rig was a Heathkit DX-60, a Gonset 212 and a 40 m dipole.

I operate a TS-990, JST-245, ACOM 2000A amplifier, with the Palstar HF-AUTO tuner. My antennas are a G5RV at 17m (55ft), 20m and 40m dipoles at 26m (85ft) in the trees. My ID-5100 (FM & D-Star) is used for VHF/UHF.  I enjoy operating phone, CW, DX, PSK31, DStar,  RTTY and EchoLink. As an Extra Class, I am an ARRL Life Member, VE, ARES, and have my DXCC, WAS, and WAC. I am a member of SKCC (#13182C) and EPC (4155). As past President of the Baton Rouge Amateur Radio Club (BRARC), I am on the Education Team and the USS KIDD (W5KID) operating teams. I am a member of the American Red Cross Disaster Services Technology (DST) team, and registered with the Boy Scouts of America as a Radio Merit Badge Counsler.

My professional life began in the early 70’s with a BSEE and MBA from MSOE (Milwaukee School of Engineering). I worked for the Square D Company, GEC of England, and retired from McNaughton-McKay Electric Co. I was the Engineering Manager for our Central Ohio Div. Our engineers help customers solve productivity problems by applying technological automation products in their plants.

My wife and I enjoyed 23-yrs in Lexington, OH. Prior to that, we spent 17-yrs in Houston, TX. Our daughters and their families live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Dallas, TX. I retired in 2014 and my wife and I now reside in Baton Rouge, LA with our daughter and 3 grandchildren. We live one mile from the Mississippi River. We love Southern Louisiana food, music, culture, and most of all the people!

Laissez les bon temps roulez! (Let the good times roll).
