My Ham Radio Interests
HF SSB, some PSK & RTTY, talkin to the guys an gals on the local repeaters.

Equipment
Main station:Icom 756 ProIII, Palstar AT2K tuner, AL-811H amp. My most often used station, my Lazy Boy HF station,(dur to being disabled I can't sit for long periods, so I invested in another complete station, which consists of a Yaesu FT-450AT, LDG AT-600Pro auto tuner, Ameritron ALS-600 600 watt solid state amp.

Both stations are tied to either a Mosley TA-33 classic, 20,15,10 meters @ 42' on my Hy Gain 52' crank up tower, and a Radio Works 40 meter Super Loop which thanks to the tuner covers 40-10 meters. I also have a GAP Challenger vertical, which is tied strictly to my FT-450 via the LDG tuner

Other Interests
Also hold ARRL appointment as a Tech Specialist, helping where I can, when I am able to. Also an assistant AEC for Indian River Co. Florida, and a Skywarn member Storm Spotter. If you want to have a sked send me an email, we'll do it!

Retired law enforcement, had 25 years in the field, from starting out as an MP in the US. Army, to being a patrolman, Cpl, to an assistant chief of police in a small town in Pa. where I originally hail from. Moved to Fl in 1987 for work, wound up doing security for 6-8 months until I was hired by Fl. dept of Corrections where I remained employed until 2001 when I was medically retired from an incident involving a large inmate disturbance, in which I was injured and subsequently aggravated a prior like injury received while in the Army. My injury forced my early retirement and by 2003 was permanently and totally disabled.

So much for that. I now live for this hobby, as it has given me so much more. The friends I've made, the help I received, the encouragement from family to move ahead within this hobby. My proudet moment was when my daughter at 15 tested and received her CSCE for her Technician license. I just wih she would study and get her general.

Clubs
Past president and current member VBARC Vero Beach Amateur Radio Club. Charter member/director Treasure Coast Repeater Association, ARRL.
