I received my novice licene in 1952 at the age of 13. I upgraded to General in 1953 and Advanced in 1956. I upgraded to Extra Class in 1967 back when you had to be able to copy 20 WPM Morse Code. I went into the Air Force in 1957 and went to Airborne Radio Repairman School at Scott AFB. I was transferred to Wiesbaden AFB, Germany and was active as DL4OI. I transferred from Airborne Radio to Precision Measurement Equipment Calibration Technician in 1959. I got out of the Air Force in 1961 and went to work as a Technical Representive for RCA at Stewart AFB, NY. I transferred to Niagara Falls AFB and started my Career as a Civilian with the Department of the Air Force. I went to the Precision Measurement School at Lowewry AFB in Colorado as the first civilan to attend. I returned to Niagara Falls AFB and in 1966 I was promoted to Electronic Technician (GS-9) and transferred to Rome Air Development Center at Griffiss AFB, Rome Ny. I started as a nightime student at Syracuse University in 1967 and graduated with a Bachelors degree in PHYSIC's as a Night Student in 1974. I went an additional 30 hours and building on my Physice courses was awarded Bachelors degree in Electronic Enginering in 1976. In 1983 I was awarded a Masters Degree in Engineering Managerment and was promoted to Supervisory Elecronic Engineer (GS-14). I was Deputy Division Chief of the Electromagnetic Systems Compatibility Division until my retirement in 1994. In 2010 due to medical problems I took a break from Ham Radio and sold all my equipment and my "Antenna Farm". Up until that time I was active in DXCC and had 248 countries confirmed and QSL cards from another 50 countries that I did not submit for DXCC Acredidation. Unfortunatly I threw out those cards which would have put me close to 300 countries. In 2021 I got back into Ham Radio and joined the Wireless Society of Souther Maine. I am a Volunteer Examiner for the ARRL. I am now 82 Years old in 2021.


Yaesu FT-1000D/SP-8 Speaker and Hustler 5btv. I also have a MFJ-269 Antenna Analyzer.
