I've lived in the Phoenix, AZ area for most of my adult life. Married with 3 children...but no other hams in the family-->UPDATE!!!!!! Thanksgiving 2011–my son comes home from UT-Austin and tells me he's now KF5NIW. Never thought it would happen!
I have BS and MS degrees in Electrical Engineering, and work for a large wireless company in their RF network planning department. Yes, ham radio led to my career!
I've been an active ham since 1976, which turns out to be about 70% of my life now. My main ham radio interests are mobile HF operation, DXing, and tinkering. I hope you find something useful and possibly even interesting here.
