Jim Talens, N3JT

I was first licensed in 1960 as K3MNJ in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but moved to Northern Virginia in 1975 for a job with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). I had expected to go into patent law given I had an electrical engineering degree (and an MBA) and had taken a number of patent law courses at law school. But when the FCC interviewed on campus looking for somebody with my background I figured a year or two in Washington, DC wouldn’t sidetrack me for long and might be fun.
