Vaclav G. "Jim" Ujcik is an Extra class licensee and has been a Ham for over 35 years. He grew up in the Chicago suburb of Addison, but after 25 years of moving with his Air Force wife has finally settled down (at least temporarily) back in central Illinois.
Jim is a graduate of the University of Illinois/Urbana with a BS in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering. After serving 8 years in the Air Force as an engineer, he started his own flight training business. Recently, he started a third career as a software engineer with Caterpillar. His wife of 30+ years, Gaylene, retired from the US Air Force and is now working at Caterpillar in Peoria, IL.
Current equipment is an Elecraft K2, although an ICOM IC-746, Yeasu FT-767GX, or Heath HX-10 may be heard on occasion. Antenna is a Butternut HF9V ground mounted vertical. He continues to enjoy CW, although dabbles with just about every mode available including packet, APRS, DSTAR, C4FM, SDR, satellites, PSK and SSTV. A perennial "small fry" in November SS, he can also be found at FDIM and the Dayton Hamvention just about every year.
