Greetings! from an early teen ham in 1963 as WN0FLD, then WA0FLD. In Vietnam Era was KR6LP/AB2LP and worked Army MARS from AB9USA and AB2USA.

My daughter is Denise, N7LXB and I am very proud of her… she got her General with CW at 11.  She can build a quad in the dark!

My best friends are Jerry Bustin, KR7KZ and his family in Kennewick, WA who I met after Jerry’s chopper fell to the ground in Vietnam.  No person has been a friend like Jerry!

My interests are: Horseback riding (training now and will be in KC’s American Royal in Decembr), Sea Kayaking, art (drawing and painting), quad helicopter with GoPro, music (Jazz and rock)…I play drums and am learning the tenor sax, mountain biking,hiking, cross-country skiing and ham radio.  My main ham radio interests now are QRP, IRLP, EchoLink and CW.

I have moved to Lakewood, Pennsylvania and live in the Poconos in extreme NE Pennsylvania.  I was a Quality Engineer at FLIR Systems, Inc. in the Portland area and had to retire early.

My station now is of vintage gear:  Collins 32S-3, 75S-3 with 312B-4 (S Line), KWM2-A, 312B-5 VFO, 30L-1 Amp with a Drake MN-2000 tuner. I also use an IC7100 for mobile and an IC7300. I use an Love it and the Heil Gold Elite microphone that Jerry gave me.
