WB1GCM, ex WN1TDN

First licensed in 1974. I enjoy all modes, all bands, old equipment and new equipment. My interest in Amateur Radio lead me to a career in electronics and television broadcasting. During college (Univsersity of Hartford), I started work at the Connecticut NBC affiliate (WVIT, Channel 30) as a camera operator on the weekends (1979). By the last year of college, I was working full time and going to school full time. My TV career lasted for 28 years. During that time I did everything from running a studio camera to maintaining the 120 KW transmitter on Rattlesnake Mountain; including setting up and participating in live remote broadcasts. I also was the evening Studio Supervisor for a number of years, running the audio board during live newscasts.

I left my TV job, to take my "dream job" as Test Engineer at the ARRL Laboratory, in April of 2008. At the Lab, I get to test and sometimes review new Amateur radio equipment. Lab testing is my primary function, but my Lab "Dad", Ed Hare, W1RFI, has allowed me to pursue additional work, such as producting technical videos and the building of a radio museum. The part I enjoy the most is meeting other Radio Amateurs at conventions around the country.

My dear wife, Kathy, is KA1RWY has been a ham since 1988. Not just a "Paper" ham, Kathy has worked more DXCC entities than I have; earning WAS and DXCC on 10 meters alone with her Advanced Class license. She's also an ARRL staff member :)
