I was born in Glean Cove, NY in 1959. In 1969 we moved to Florida for year, and then moved back to NY. I lived in Long Island till I was 17. I joined the Army in 1976 to 1980.
I became a ham radio operator on September 7th 2010. I was listening to the Insomniac net on a scanner and decided to get my amateur radio license so I could play the insomniac net. Now I am the Thursday night controller. I have IRLP node 8091 and Allstar node 27859. I also have a repeater on 440 MHZ. Thank you all for being so nice to me and taking me in like family.
