Biography

I've been interested in radio communication since the late 1960's. I became seriously interested in amateur radio while assigned to the US Army War College in Carlisle PA in 1988. Later, (I think was late summer 1988) an Army MARS conference was held at Carlisle Barracks and one of the US Army Signal Corps guys "hoodwinked" me into assisting. That's really all it took.

I retired from the Air Force in 1993 after over 20 years service and remained in Carlisle until my children graduated high school. While in Carlisle, I was active on 2m/440 and learned a lot from my Elmer -- Bill, W3MXD (SK).

Really haven't been active on HF until late summer 2016 and have been on the air as often as possible, usually on weekends.

There's just something about old tube radios that makes the experience of talking with someone so much more enjoyable. Granted, today's equipment is nice, but knowing you have to do more than turn on the power, select the frequency, and hit the PTT button, gives a certain degree of satisfaction that I think is missing with the new rigs.
