About Me

Christmas 1958 I received a pair of 100mw walkie-talkies. They were on Ch 14 in the CB band and worked like a champ. Within the first hour of play I was hearing skip from Chicago. 

That was the beginning of my fondness for radio. Unfortunately I wasn't involved with radio again until the CB craze, and had both mobile and base station in the early 70's. Then between college, girl friends, fast cars, motorcycles, and career... radio again faded.  

October 2006 I was t-boned on my motorcycle by a drunk driver, and was critically injured. After 2 months in the hospital, and 10 surgeries later… I was transferred to a nursing home. In a nursing home you are typically one of three things; 1) being tortured by the staff, 2) asleep, or 3) bored. Noticing my boredom an old friend of 30 years brought me a Radio Shack 1000 channel triple trunking scanner. It had a stock setting for amateur radio, and I started listening. So I decided to get the Tech license, and with all of the free time on my hands in the nursing home, studying the book was an easy and welcome task.  

I escaped from the nursing home in March of 2007, tested and passed tech shortly thereafter. August of 2010 I tested and received my Extra (no code). To be totally honest, I do not have the skill-set of a extra… what I do have is the ability to memorize all of the possible questions on the test, which is exactly what I did. So I consider myself a extra with a ‘small e’. The good news is I don’t have to take any more tests!  

I married late in life, so here I am at 58 years old with two great kids. Both are girls 12 and 14 years old (why yes… I do carry a gun, why do you ask?). We moved to Norman, OK from Chandler, AZ in August of 2010. My wife has family here and lived here as a child. 

I have had several careers over the last 58 years, real estate broker in Arizona, professional musician, retail (including high-end audio, waterbeds, and BMW motorcycles), Air Force both active and reserve, and since 1995 a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer.  

My current radios:

Yaesu 857D that I use both mobile and in the shack

Yaesu FTM-350 (two) one for the shack and one for the car.

Motorola GTX (900MHz) mobile that I use in the shack

Yaesu VX-8

Yaesu VX-3 

Antennas:

Diamond X-50 for UHF/VHF + low power 220

TransWorld 40m monoband

Slinky

G5RV

6BTV Hustler (coming) 

OK, so now you know more about me than you probably wanted to, so I’ll shut-up!
