Biography

I live in Capitola by the Sea, a resort village about 30 miles north of Monterey and 5 miles south of Surf City Santa Cruz. Capitola has about 11,000 people in the Winter, and way too many tourists in the Summer. I am 75 years old and a retired Systems Engineer. I have been a ham since Feb 06. I am a member of the ARRL and ARES, and am a designator Disaster Support Worker (DSW) Communications. I volunteer with the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Department and the RED CROSS, supporting their communications activities. . My only "real" radio is a YAESU VX-6 2M handheld; however, where I work 2M and 70 CM, and through IRLP have made many long distant QSOs while sitting on my deck and drinking a cold beer.

On 01 Dec 07, I became a General Class ham. I use the Santa Cruz CA Ham Club K6BJ transmitter, located in the Santa Cruz hills.

In the past, I have used CQ-100 VOiP for voice, CW, PSK, Olivia, Hellschreiber and RTTY, with Hamscope, CWGET, FLDIGI and TrueTTY software packages. Look for me on voice or CW calling frequencies, or 14.070 for PSK and 14.080 for RTTY, Hellschreiber and Olivia. I also operate Hamsphere or Echolink, on occasion.

CW04 USNR(Ret)

I am also a member of the Naval Cryptologic Veteran's Association, and I check in periodically on the FRUPAC SSB Net.
