My Ham Radio Interests
I have been active on QRP since 1956 with home built equipment. I enjoy designing and building my own gear and antennas.
I was active on 2 meter Auora and meteor burst from 1956 to 1969 with home built CW/DSB rig, 4CX300 amplifier and stacked quad 8 element yagis.
I operated Skylane Cubical Quads until 1986. Since 1986 I have been too busy with Medical school and work and not able to build as I would like.
I operate evenings on 40 and 30 and days on 20 and 17 meters as propagation allows. Propagation is improving on all bands. I QSL via eqsl.cc as cost of mailing is so expensive. Look for HC4/W4BWS on the low end of 40 and 20, and around the QRP freqs.

Equipment
FT-840, IC 735, PS55, MFJ 9420, SB 200, Dipoles on 40, 30, 20, 17 meters. 20 meter "X" beam in works.

Other Interests
I was an Engineer with Harris Corp., Melbourne,FL for 25 years. Retird in 1986 after the Shuttle disaster forced many early retirments.
Went to medical school and became a Doctor of Chiropractic. I opened my own clinic in 1991 and retired again in 2008. Now operate non-profit natural health clinic in Ecuador.
To help support the clinic I sell Ham Radio Reference info CD with over $50.00 value on the CD. I also have a CD with favorite recipies from our church members and my Mother's and wife's family favorite recipies. Lots of good eating here.
I have written a very popular e-book, Retire Cheap in Ecuador on $30 a Day, about Ecuador and the Pacific Coast. Most books I have seen and read skip over this part of the coast and yet it is a beautiful area and like Florida spring and fall all year long.

We moved to Ecuador for several reasons, including the climate, low cost of living, inproved health and to operate a non-profit health clinic for the poor. People here work for $2.00 to $5.00 an hour, when they can find work. Low cost Govt clinics are 60 to 300 miles away, cost about $30.00to $60.00 per trip plus medications.
