Biography

was originally licensed in New Jersey as a novice (WV2FNQ) in 1960. My father took me shopping to radio row in New York City and got me a Halicrafter's Short Wave Radio and a used Heathkit transmitter. After a year, other events in my teenage years took precedence and I let my license expire. After a hitch in the USAF, I spent most of my working career in the Aerospace industry.

It wasn't until 2012 that I able to resume the hobby. Friends of mine in the Civil Air Patrol (USAF Auxiliary) convinced me to get my Technician(KF7WWP), and then to upgrade to General. In April 2016, I upgraded to the Extra Class.

I like the challenge of DXing on 100 watts. At times when traveling I use the Echolink program from my computer, which enables me to keep in touch with the nets I work out in the Phoenix area.

I also am on DMR with a TYT MD-2017 Dual Band handheld.

I am an ARRL Member, American Legion Amateur Radio Club Life Member, OMISS Member(#8941), 3905 Century Club Member, 10-10 Club Member # 77529 and a QCWA Member # 37490

Equipment


I use a Yaesu FT-991 as a HF base and a FT-857 as a backup. The TYT TH-9600(Analog/DMR) is used for VHF/UHF contacts. There is a vertical triband Diamond V2000 (2M / 70CM /6M) and a 8 band vertical MALDOL HVU-8 on the roof. A LDG AT-100Pro II Tuner is used as an interface. For mobile, I use a FT-7900 and a FT 2DR.
