Ham Member Lookups: 2492

 

In December of 2012 a prepper friend encouraged me to get my Ham license. Although I had heard of "shortwave" radio over the years, I had never met a Ham that exposed me to this terrific hobby. I jumped in with both feet and received my General license in January and my Extra license in February 2013.

Getting my license was the easy part...There is so much to learn and so many different aspects of this hobby. Equipment, antennas, operating, contesting, homebrewing, high fidelity audio, dealing with unsupportive spouses, etc. I am also discoverying and enjoying the worldwide "HAM Fraternity"...

I am fortunate to have a terrific local club that has a great group of veteran Hams that have been mentoring me. Norm (W4QN) and Mark (WC3W) in particular have become great friends.

My current shack consists of a Yaesu 897D, AT-897 Tuner. Like many HAMs in Florida, I live in a "restricted convenant" HOA and had to be creative with my antenna. We came up with a stealthy 110' end-fed inverted L long-wire hidden in the trees on my zero-lot line small corner lot in Abacoa Jupiter.

I graduated from the US Naval Academy with an Aerospace Engineering degree. I was attached to VA-22, a light attack squadron based in Lemoore California. Our airwing was deployed on the nuclear aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, CVN-65 and we spent most of our time in the Western Pacific and Indian Oceans. After leaving the Navy I have spent my time in a number of industries both in corporate America and as an entrepreneur. The last five years I have been involved with the Healthcare IT business.

I look forward to speaking with you on the air!
