I hold an Amateur Extra license as K6WRU. I was originally licensed in 1970 as WN5CVQ when Novice licenses had a two-year non-renewable term. I did not get to 13 words/minute in CW, so I was out of the hobby until a few years ago.
I'm active in ARES/RACES emergency communication, summits on the air (SOTA), digital modes, and youth education for ham radio. I'm a Boy Scout leader and have taught Radio Merit Badge.
I have a BS in Electrical Engineering with a concentration in signals and systems from Rice University.
