My Ham Radio Interests
I am retired now but spent 43 years in Electronics Research and Development. I started in avionics, went to agricultural instrument research, then medical & chemical instrumentation and analysis and ended up in the dark world of crypto technology and tempest computers.
For the last 30 years, as a hobby, I have specialized in repair and restoration of the Hallicrafters SR series transceivers. I have written in depth repair and restoration manuals for each radio in the series. These documents are available free of charge on either of the two Hallicrafters User Group sites. I mentor on these systems on the air and via email.
I am not a proficient operator or rag chewer. The majority of my air time is testing recent repairs or restorations. However I do enjoy technical rag chewing.
Due to recent health issues I no longer provide repair and restoration service.

Equipment
SR-150, SR-160, SR-400 (Cyclone I, II, and III), SR-500, SR-2000, 80 thru 10 meter AV-18HT.

Other Interests
Church building maintanance, small group Bible study, woodworking and tinkering in the ham shack.
