I got interested in ham radio because: I have been in love with radio in general since I first discovered Rock 'n Roll on 1520-KOMA back in 1969, and Wolfman Jack on 1090-XERB in 1970. I also got bit by the CB bug in the mid 70s. I still own my first -real- 2-way radio, a Realistic TRC-424, that my Dad got me in 1977. Becoming a HAM was a natural progression in my love of radio.

Areas of expertise: I am a broadcast engineer, and internationally certified electronics technician. (ISCET member) Certified in RF, Audio, Video, and Computer hardware. I have over 30 years experience in consumer electronics, 26 years in AM FM broadcasting, and 12 years in TV. Besides Extra class HAM, I also hold a general radiotelephone operator license. Yes, over 30 years! My first part-time job in High-School was as a CB radio repairman/installer for the local Radio Shack dealer. By the way, I also do commercial voice-over work, and have my own small recording studio.

My favorite thing to do in ham radio is: Tinker with home-brew stuff, antennas, and QRP-Phone DX on 10 Meters. 15-20 years ago, I worked all over the world on 28.45 with 10 Watts SSB. I'm looking forward to that again starting this year!
My equipment consists of: Drake Twins - R4B, T4XB for 160-10 SSB, Tempo 2020 for 75 meter SSB, RCI 2900 10 meter AM-FM-SSB, Homebrew 10 meter AM-FM, Alinco DR-130 2 meter FM

I would like to try the following new things in ham radio in the next 10 years: First, I would like to just get back on the air! I haven't had any wire in the air since I moved to Nebraska 15 years ago. I've done some 2 and 10 Meter mobile stuff, but that's it.
