Bob  WB2GJD

I moved to South Carolina in 1980 from Stanhope, NJ to work as an Electrical Engineer (PE)

for Daniel Construction Co. now known as Fluor.

My work has lead me from oversight of Electrical maintenance of remote arctic radar sites

(DEW Line) across Alaska, Canada and Greenland to a chlorine plant in Talcahuano, Chile;

from a Middle-East Petrochemical Complex to a Biochem Complex in Colorado;

from an aluminum pot line and rolling mill in Kentucky to a kaolin kiln in southern Georgia;

from automation of peanut butter plants (JIF) in Kentucky and Virginia to pollution control of coal fired

power plants across Kentucky (LG&E).                            I retired in October 2010.

 

Now I get to sit back and rag chew with Hams all over the place.    Sweet!

 

I put up with Parkinson's which makes for some interesting CW conversations. Please be patient!

Thanks

 

I am a member of the Blue Ridge Amateur Radio Society in Greenville.
