Biography

I became interested in Ham Radio at age eleven in the early sixties. At the time I was studying to take my Novice test. But when incentive licensing came along it prevented me from taking that first step. I was concerned I would not upgrade to Tech in six months. Then after high school, my brother lent my equipment to his friend Kurt, who sold it without my knowledge. Oh well, I always was interested, but did not have equipment or time. In 1992, some thirty years later, I started having a great time using cb radios, and talking sideband. I planned on getting my ticket, and bought the book and started studying, but other interests such as the internet kept me busy. Finally in 1999, I met Bob (KA2OWZ). He sold me a Yaesu FT-101 and even came over and put up a 300' loop to get me started. Bob is the man. He kept encouraging me to take the test. So, thanks to Bob, I got my Tech Plus license. I planned on upgrading to General as soon as I got settled in our new home in Virginia back in 2000. Well, it took me about one year, but it's official I finally made GENERAL in August, 2001, and it only took me 38 years to do it! In May, 2013 my wife Jackie and I moved to Savannah, GA. Recently returned the FT-101 to Bob the man and upgraded to a Yaesu FT-450D.
