Biography

Hello Everyone.

My name is Ray G Lyell. I live in Southern Illinois in a small town called Johnston City in the USA. JC as it's called is about 5 miles East of my hometown of Herrin. I have a nice 30 acre rural piece of land that is quiet and great for my Shortwave listening. I was born in December 1966. I have been married to my wife Grace for 25 years. I have been listening to Shortwave Radio since I was 17 years old back in 1984. Before that I used to talk on the CB Radio. I had a Cobra 1000GTL Base station with D-104 with Antron 99 antenna. When I'm not listening to my Shortwave radios, I do quite a bit of cycling to stay in shape. I used to race but not so much anymore.

My other favorite hobby is Amateur Astronomy. I've been doing that since I was about 10 years old. I have a big 12 inch DOB reflector Telescope and a case full of lens's and filters. Also had a letter published from NASA during the last Hubble mission back in 2009. I also collected data during the total eclipse we had in August 2017.

Other long time interests include Music I have a pretty large record album and CD collection. Computers, Reading different tech and astronomy books. Also Bowling. To everyone visiting my page, Thank You and good listening.
