Biography

I've been a ham since passing Novice at the Morris Radio club in Morris Plains NJ in 1979.
Except for the 10 years between 2003 and 2013 I have been very interested and involved in ham radio including a bunch of clubs.
I'm a bit mobile, historically. I lived in the HoustonTX, AllentownPA, PhiladelphiaPA, MorristownNJ. NashuaNH, AlbanyNY, SeattleWA, OrlandoFL and RaleighNC metro areas since I got my ham license.

I've worked with VHF SSB, repeaters, satellite, packet radio, and FM. I regularly use 40m SSB, 6mAM and 10m SSB. Generally speaking I'm not a DXer. Usually I use modes appropriate for reliable communications, not unpredictable communications.

I enjoy working with groups of people on long-term tasks. Packet radio networks, repeater networks. I'm currently working on building a packet network and I run a monthly new-ham educational meeting.
