Welcome to My Website
I have been a Amateur Radio Operator for over 25 years. I first received a novice license in 1975, but let it lapse due to travel issues with the family. Right after I graduated from High School, in 1977, I obtained by new call sign KB5MK. I used this call throughout college and my initial professional career in telecommunications. When I upgraded to Extra Class, I when ahead and obtained the vanity call W5ADC. I think I will keep this one for a while.
Like most Amateur Radio Operators, by interests have change over the years. As you will see from this site, in the recent past, I was involved heavily in Amateur Satellite Communications. That was great fun for a number of years. After that phase ran it's course, I became more involved in the public service aspect of ham radio. This is my current focus. I am also involved with the Plano Amateur Radio Klub (PARK). I have serviced in various capacities in the club from just member to my current position as Activity Director.
