Biography

I first obtained my general class license when I was in the 7th grade and my extra class licence before 1980. At that time there was still a substantial code and theory requirement. Compared to when I was first licensed amateur radio today is unrecognizable. Unless you were around then you would have no idea what I'm talking about. CW to me became a second language.

As an adult however I wasn’t able to spend very much time with the hobby as I might have because I was engaged in a professional career which took me all over the country. I have multiple college degrees and a graduate degree from Rutgers University and I worked for over two decades in a corporate environment that was highly stressful and demanded high skills and completed projects on time that met or exceeded expectations.

I'm now retired and living with my wife in Oregon. Photography is my favorite hobby.

I have a YouTube Channel with an amateur radio playlist:

KA7V / The software initiates the sequencer: the antenna relays and mast mounted preamp are switched to transmit, then the linear amplifier and finally the transceiver are switched to transmit.
