About me, also on QRZ…
I received my first ticket (Tech) in 1994 while serving in the US Air Force out of Beale AFB in California. I was in the 9th communications squadron working on older dummy terminals and mainframe computers at the time. Myself and a friend always had an interest in LMR on the base and had thought about HAM radio while in high school, so we bought our books from Radio Shack I believe and about a month later we took our exams and passed.
Over the next few years we were somewhat active, but with deployments and other responsibilities, and honestly just not making it a priority we were really no longer on the air that frequently. I got married in 1997 and a month later was deployed to Saudi Arabia for 99 days.
I separated from the Air Force in 2000 and moved to Maryland to work for a software company in Annapolis. After getting my bearings, adjusting to civilian life, getting my computer certifications, etc…. I soon looked back to my radio and quickly realized that my original radio had lost my interest and I needed to get a new one to get me going again. I was back on the air with a handheld Yaesu model xxx for a while…..
Fast forward to 2008, 2 children later and another one “in the oven”, a buyout from AT&T of my original company and we move to Maine where my wife is from originally (China, Maine).
I have only recently 2018 been getting back into the Hobby and have since upgraded my Tech class to General and then a week later to Extra. I look forward to speaking with and perhaps meeting some of you on the radio or at events.
