On my way to becoming a member, I completed Levels 1, 2, and 3 of the CWOPS CW Academy program with advisors Paul Nelson/K4JAZ, Bill DeVore/W3PNM, and Joe Spencer/KK5NA.
I am located in Floyd County, Virginia in the Blue Ridge Mountains, on a farm situated on top of a 3,100 feet elevation ridge, with a 2,200 ft. longwire stretched across it in two legs.
I am a retired aircraft technician/flight line mechanic and real estate broker. I still operate a general printing business (see QSLpostcards.com for QSL card printing!), and I am a pilot.
I enjoy all types of operating, including CW, Phone, Digital, Weak Signal Propagation, and the SOTA program. Other interests and hobbies are flying, antique clock restoration, weather & instruments, antiques, and mountain hiking.
Many thanks to Dan, K4FN for the nomination and for the sponsors who supported my nomination.This biography is what appeared in Solid Copy when the member joined CWops.
