Hello, thank you for taking the time to look over my information. The picture is of me about to enjoy a cannoli in Messina, Italy.

I was first licensed at the tender age of 16 as WN2MDC, later to become WB2MDC when I received my General about 6 months later.

I am now retired after working for Monroe County, New York as a Project Manager. I did projects that were related to 9.1.1 communications such as radio and other electronic projects. I worked in our radio shop for 25 years before being promoted in 1995.

I have also been the Association of Public Safety Communications Official's, International (APCO) Police and Local Government radio frequency advisor for Northern New York State since 1977.

Now I keep myself busy with a small business doing radio licensing, project planning and project management for public safety communications systems. Golf 3 times a week and activities around our community keep me very busy as well, so much to do so little time.

73's, hope to talk with you on the air again!!! Gary
