I was first licensed in March 1970 as a freshman in college. I enjoyed operating our school club station (W5PXZ - Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas) with the other guys in our club. After graduation in December 1973 (BSEE), my activity varied over the next few years due to work activities, but I never became completely inactive, even after I went to graduate school at the University of Texas at Austin. I have held each of the five classes of licenses available, getting my Extra in the mid 80's. I have been fairly active in the VE program since then and still help on most of the ARRL/VEC sessions in the Austin area. My current hobby interests are mostly QRP and CW on HF and daily QSOs on VHF and UHF for mobile operation. I enjoy working DX when the available time, bands, and conditions permit. I have now retired and plan to be more active, especially on HF.

I prefer to QSL via the BURO.
