Welcome to my Amateur Radio Page. I have been a licensed Amateur Radio Operator since 1957. I spent the early part of my amateur career in the suburbs of Detroit. I moved to Rochester NY in 1990 where I worked for the Xerox Corporation as a Systems Engineer. I moved to Colorado in September of 2001 after retiring from Xerox.
I hold 5BDXCC, Honor Roll and a couple of zones short of 5BWAZ with all current countries worked and 1 to be confirmed.
I am very interested in contesting and my favorites are CQ160, ARRL 160, ARRL Sweepstakes and CQWWCW and finally the Stu Perry Top Band Distance Challenge. I think contesting is a facet of this hobby that is very challenging and enjoyable. In addition I thoroughly enjoy chasing DX.
My home station consists of :
Alpha 87A amplifier
Various keyers, PC's, audio equip and monitors.
