My QCWA life membership number 30909 is an indication that I am relatively new to QCWA as I was first licensed in 1976 as WN3BSI. Although I have not been a member very long I have been active in the Pelican Chapter and the editor of the chapter newsletter for a few years. Two years ago I was elected to the position of Secretary of the chapter.
I am a life member of ARRL and have been a member of the Nittany ARC (State College PA) since 1976, serving as president for one term. For many years I participated in the NTS as a CW traffic handler.
My professional career started with a doctorate in Chemical Engineering, but I soon became an analytical chemist and with an associate formed our own company. Within 25 years we had 250 employees and decided it was time to sell the company. Since 1989 I have spent the winters in Florida where I was introduced to QCWA by Art Kunst W3WM.
