QCWA # 35552
I have been licensed since 1977. Originally as KA9ALY (Novice) in Illinois after being a Shortwave Listener (I miss my Yaesu FRG-7).
A job transfer moved me from Chicago to Minneapolis in 1984. I upgraded to Technician class in 1986 and then Advanced class the following year and recently to Amateur Extra.
I am currently Vice President of the Twin City Repeater Club (TCRC) and also belong to the Twin Cities FM Club (TCFMC) and Valley Amateur Radio Club (VARC) where I serve as an ARRL Volunteer Examiner (VE).
Besides ham radio, I am an amateur astronomer and avid photographer.
Other memberships and affiliations:
ARRL, QCWA and 10-10
73 and hope to work you on the air!
