Biography

I originally got interested in Amateur Radio in the 1960's as a kid and got my Novice. I still remember the call sign WN6GCT. I built quite a few radios and Heathkits over the years. I wish those were still around.

This hobby gave way to flying in 1976. By 1980 I was a Chief Flight Instructor at Gunnell Aviation at Santa Monica Airport (SMO). A break in flying during the mid 1980's found me writing computer programs. In 1989 I started flying for American Eagle, the regional for American Airlines for the next 22 years. In 2011 I went over to mainline American Airlines flying the 757/767 and now the 737. I still do some General Aviation flying from time to time and keep my CFI-AIM current.

I age out of the airline flying at the end of 2019.

I am usually on HF bands or occasionally on VHF/UHF here in Los Angeles. I'm also always looking for some CW. I'm not that good at it yet so only patient people need apply. :)
