Biography

I am a 70 year old, retired educator, having taught in the Los Angeles Unified School District, and worked in the education department of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
I was first licensed in 1988 as a novice (KB6YUU). Learning Morse was difficult. I tried 4 times, over 15 years without success. In 1988 I got my first hearing aid, and suddenly I could pass 5 words a minute, and I got my license! I upgraded to Technician the next year (N6TGZ).

I knew I would never be able pass 13 words a minute, so I did not try. Eighteen years later, I found that the FCC dropped the code requirement, and 6 weeks later I was a General. About 4 weeks after that, I passed my Extra exam. I changed to a vanity call (N7IY), reflecting my new Oregon location in 2010.

I have a very modest radio shack. My radio is an Icom 718, feeding an Alpha Delta DX-CC antenna. For digital I use a Signalink USB interface. My computers are old iMac, G4's (purchased used for $25.00 each), running cocoModem. I have added a Compaq laptop (again, purchased used, for $25.00) to run the "JT" suite of programs.

I am very active in Amateur Radio.
