I am a native of Houma, Louisiana, born in 1952. Houma is a hub for the oil industry in southeast Louisiana, known for its bayous and waterways.

My wife is from Suriname, South America. We enjoy our family of three children and six grandchildren who also live nearby our QTH.

I achieved a degree in Chemistry from "Harvard on the Bayou" (Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, LA). I am currently retired from a chemicals manufacturing facility on the Mississippi River which produces Building Block Chemicals to formulate the graphite composite used in the manufacture of stealth aircraft.

I have been licensed as a ham since 1976. I was on a long hiatus from the hobby for many years, but I became active again in January 2013.

I am currently president of the Thibodaux Amateur Radio Club, W5YL.

I operate 75 and 40 meters on an Icom IC-718 and an Ameritron AL-80B linear fed into a 75-40 meter fan-style inverted vee up about 30 feet. I also operate 10, 15, and 20 meters from a Hy-Gain Tri-Band beam at an elevation of about 35 feet.

I operate PSK-31 and other digital modes on my IC-718 using a Signalink USB soundcard and an ASUS Desktop PC using Windows 10 running Ham Radio Deluxe version 6.0.

I operate the local repeaters using a Yaesu FT-2900, Yaesu FT-7900, Yaesu FT1D, Yaesu FT-60, or a Baofeng UV-5R.

Thanks for looking me up and hope to QSO with you sometime.

God Bless and 73's,
