W2BK "Welcome 2 Burger King"

Photo above is Day One at the Dayton Hamvention 2015 with Gordon West, WB6NOA.

To think going to all these hamfests through the years and at long last my first visit to Dayton. :)

I'm like a kid in a candy store.

 

Lifelong resident of the Capital District.

Graduated from Hudson Valley Community College with an A.A.S. in Electrical Technology.

Spent thirty years working in various facets of the food industry. Retired in January, 2016 after nearly 12 years of employment with the NYS Department of Labor.

First licensed in 1969 earning my Novice ticket using the call WN2LBB.

Passed my General Class exam in 1972 and issued the call sign WB2FOB.

Upgraded to Advanced Class in 1984 before earning my Extra Class license in 1987.

In 2011 I decided to apply for a vanity call sign and was successful in getting my current call, W2BK.

I stay active in many Amateur Radio activities and enjoy contesting and attending hamfests just to name a few.

Additionally I love sports with an affinity for both the New York Yankees and New York Football Giants.

I have been a Volunteer Examiner since 1988 participating in many Amateur Radio exam sessions. Co-founder of the CARE group established in 2008 with our first class taking place in March, 2009. Through the years many people had expressed to me feeling more comfortable learning in a classroom setting rather than learning by themselves. This led to the formation of the organization.

Our main focus centers around offering quarterly training classes for the entry level (Technician Class) license. We began by assembling a team of instructors who are key members from the various radio clubs in the Capital District who were interested in doing class instruction.

We are at the cutting edge of the latest information since our hobby is very transient in nature. We try to assist our graduates and anyone else interested in continuing education to help them enjoy the Amateur Radio experience. Additionally we offer training on how to become a Volunteer Examiner, answer questions concerning license upgrading, periodically offer live demonstration programs, conduct group activities, provide monthly tidbits and happenings with our all new CARE Blast and much, much, more.

If you are interested in getting started in Amateur Radio you can contact me or visit our website at: http://hamsthatcare.com/

We hope you enjoy it!
