I've been with the hobby since 1969. I've lived in and/or visited other countries over the years and operated in some those countries. (Japan, Germany and Costa Rica).

Put my time in doing the ARES, RACES and Red Cross services gigs over the years. I was at wildfires, floods and earthquake devastated areas years ago (in the 80's & 90's) in California providing communications and other emergency services. (Ham radio is just a hobby for me these days).

Retired January 2020 from a DOD-contracted combustible ordnance company located in Coachella, Ca ... and the XYL and I decided to get out of California (after 50 years) and get away from all of that "Woke crap" over there during the "Mass Exodus!"

Spent 10 and a half years in the US Army in communications (radio-teletype/Morse operator ... and a secondary MOS in radio repair) ... and did a 4 year stint in the Air National Guard, sometimes on active duty.

I dabble with Summits On The Air (SOTA) ... and Parks On The Air (POTA).

Operate mainly CW, SSB and RTTY on HF ... 80 thru 10 ... (minus 60-meters).
