Thank you for visiting my page and making a new contact with my station
New Vanity Call Sign effective 11/15/2022
I am new to HAM Radio and recently passed my Tech and General operator exam in March 2022. I completed my upgrade to Amateur Extra in October 2022. I was always interested in CB Radio back in the 70's and started with a Lafayette Comstat 25 Tube Rig and three-element beam antenna on the CB Band. I still have that same old tube rig and it operates today.
Being new to the Hobby I am just now setting up my new base station in an HOA environment with antenna restrictions located in Berlin New Jersey. I operate a Yaesu 991a with a Diamond X50 Antenna for FM and a G5RV Junior dipole located in my attic.
I worked as a National Sales and Marketing Director in Consumer Electronics field, which includes Consumer Retail Product Launches and worked for both RCA Consumer Electronics and General Electric for a period over 24 years, along with Vonage VOIP.
I would like to thank all of the experienced HAM operators that have been not only welcoming but extremely helpful in getting me started in this new Hobby. I enjoy operating on the local FM repeater, and have been testing WIREX Digital communications as I start to make contacts on HF on the 40 and 20 Meter Bands
