I was originally licensed in 1957 as KN1IVY and my original QTH was Providence, RI (where I was born). I upgraded to General Class and became K1IVY. I joined the USAF and am a Vietnam Veteran. After leaving the Air Force, I took a 20 year hiatus from ham radio until 1987, when I retested and received my current callsign.
 I am married with four grown children and four  grandchildren. I own a manufacturers representative sales organization here in Colorado (Eagle Technical Sales, LLC) which represents major US electronic equipment companies throughout the Rocky Mountain region.
 Other hobbies and interests are genealogy and sports fishing. I am also the Emergency Coordinator for Boulder County ARES (BCARES) District -11  and a member of the Mile High DX Association.
 My radio interests are primarily DXing, both on CW and SSB, but I can be found occasionally handing out my callsign on the GERATOL Extra Class WAS Net on 3.768 MHz  or on the 3905CC WAS Net on 40 and 80 Meters.
 Another ham radio related activity involves being a volunteer assigned to the Boulder County Sheriff Department's SWAT team and providing them with portable ATV capability whenever the public's safety is involved.
 I am actively involved with getting youth into amateur radio. The Boulder Amateur Radio Club has a youth auxiliary club called "BARC Juniors". Over the last eight years we have elmered and licensed over 134 young hams under the age of 18 -- including several who have attained Extra Class licenses. Make sure you visit the Youth in Amateur Radio Forum at Dayton and see our internationally recognized BARC Juniors, as well as other kids from around the US, give their presentations at this forum. It will be the seventh year that we have had the BARC Juniors represent us there.
In my spare time, I edit and publish the monthly Boulder Amateur Radio Club's "BARC's Bark" newsletter, the Mile High DX Association's "MHDXA Wire" and the GERATOL Net's "The GERATOLeer" quarterly newsletter.
