My Ham Radio Interests
Being in Electronics all my life, Ham radio was a natural progression for me. Its been one of the best hobbies I have been involved with, and is forever changing. Always something new to try, and with the marriage of radio and computer, its really opened the doors for new ideas, only dreamed about 25 yrs ago. Now, software definded radios, and who knows whats next.

Please Note, that after 10 years of maintaining www.w4lgh.com I took it off line July 2012! Many thanks to all who visited me there, but like so many other thing in this economy, I had to start cutting back.

Also NOTE: I have a NEW email address: w4lgh@gmx.com

I have tried to change it in my profile, but it won't let me!!
