I worked as a programmer and systems consultant from 1969 through 2006. The last 32 years of my career I was employed by Allstate Insurance where I programmed for IBM mainframes, midrange systems and PCs.

I was licensed as a novice in 1977 and worked up to the advanced grade. I lost interest in amatuer radio about the time the Apple II came out. Eventually I donated my Kenwood TS820 and all my gear to a boy scout troop.

In 2014, after seven years of retirement and non programing days I discovered the Arduino world. In the beginning of 2015, after reading Arduino projects for amatuer radio I decided to return to the hobby. Being too old to climb roofs I installed a four band MFJ vertical in my yard and acquired a Ten Tec Patriot which is an open source radio. I have this radio connected to a Ten Tec sound card which is then connected to a Raspberry PI 2 for PSK31 operation.

I now spend my time re-learning Morse Code and making program changes to the Patriot.

On July 10, 2015 I received an ANAN-10e. This has become my primary rig. Operating PSK31 I have made many contacts all over the USA and Europe usiing 10 watts or less.


Update Nov. 2015. I added a new photo of my shack. It's an iMac 27" with 32 Gb ram, 1Tb SSD, iCore 7 running at Turbo 4. I'm using Parallels 11 to run Windows 10. Inside the Windows 10 virtual machine is PowerSDR for the Anan-10e and FLDIGI. All that on a 5K display.
