Retired Engineer. 55 years of Amateur Radio! Originally licensed as KN8BKB in 1961 . I had the great fortune to have my Dad as my mentor. We enjoyed over 50 years in this hobby together until his passing in 2014 at the age of 94. My Dad, K8BKE (sk) pictured below with me at age 13. We are three generations of hams. My son, Jeremy is now K8BKE.

I enjoy home brewing and restoring / operating vintage vacuum tube ham gear. Check out our West Michigan 6 meter VHF nets:
