I have been in electronics most of my life. Built my first amplifier in 7th grade. I put 8 years in the Navy on board Polaris Submarines as a Missile Technician. Was a novice in the early 60’s but let it expire. Moved back to California for a couple of years then to Portland, Or. Owned and operated a two-way radio shop (Vecom) for 8 years and finally in 1990 moved back to Woodland, Ca. my home town. I did get my Technician license in 1985 and upgraded to Extra after coming back here. I worked in Aircraft Electronic (Avionics) until retirement in 2008. Obtained my GROL (FCC First Phone) while working in Avionics. Currently involved with HF, 6 meters, 2, 220,440 and 900 mhz. Currently run several manufactures equipment. My main HF rig is a new Yaesu FTDX-3000, Kenwood TS-450 back up. The VHF-UHF is a mixture of Alinco, Yaesu and Motorola equipment. Spend my time helping other hams and doing projects (test boxes) for previous employer.
