I was first licensed in 1968 as a radio operator in the US Army where I served as the Station Operator for the 5th ARMY MARS Station A9USA at Ft. Sheridan IL. My duties were to pass messages received from personnel stationed in Vietnam to their families in the 5th Army area. We used only CW and it was a great service for military families!
Like most hams my key fell silent while going to college (BS Physics/MS EE), work and raising our three children with my wife Kathy – now married for 54 fantastic years!
I have been retired for 12 years and am now able to enjoy this great hobby and participate in my local ARES team and many activities with my grandchildren!This biography is what appeared in Solid Copy when the member joined CWops.
