Ham Member Lookups: 27404

 

Thanks for taking a look at my QRZ page. I have been a ham for over 40 yrs, getting my novice ticket in 1976 while in junior high. I was fortunate enough to find an elmer in my town of Romney, WV (W8FZP SK)  who was willing to work with me to learn the code. Back in those days general class hams could adminster the novice test and send it to the FCC. No ULS back then so you had to wait 4-6 weeks to get the license in the mail. I remember it was December 24, 1976 when the license came. Later I passed my tech and advance class at FCC field offices.  After high school I studied physics at the University of South Florida and graduated with my BS in 1984. I passed my extra in1991.  

I have been very active in the hobby and enjoy CW and Phone as well as the occasional PSK contact. I love playing the cat and mouse game that a rare DX station offers when operating split, CW or Phone I don't care. I love QSO parties especially the FQP where I get to be the pile up. Recently, I have discovered QRP with my KX3 and love to work outdoors portable when I can.  

I work as an Environmental Manager for a fortune 200 company. I have been in the field for over 30 yrs, both as a regulator and the regulated. I have worked for local government in FL as well as the Defense Department in TX. Married 33 yrs with 3 grown kids and 2 grandchildren.

Well, if you have made it this far, you must have found my story somewhat interesting. As passionate as I am about amateur radio, there is one event that eternally change my life. That was the day I received Jesus Christ as my personal savior. You know we are all born with a terminal desease called sin. Sin seperates us from God and prescribes death (both physical and spiritual) as the consequences (Romans 6:23 says that the earnings of sin is death). But God so loved us that He sent Jesus to pay the penalty that you and I deserve. The Bible goes on to say that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. His death and resurrection makes it possible to be reconciled to God and experience forgiveness and eternal life (Romans 3:23).  So what must I do to be reconciled to God? We receive the gift of God by faith by admitting and turning from our sins to trusting in the one who has paid our sin debt. If you will confess the Lord Jesus Christ, you will be saved.

The philosphy of the world is he who dies with the most toys wins. In reality, you just die. The Bible says it is appointed unto man to die and then the judgement. Where do you stand with God? Choose this day who you will serve, but for me and my house we will serve the Lord.
