BIOGRAPHY

Roger has been licensed since 1964 when he got his Novice ticket in Auburn, N.Y.   He was very active in amateur radio until the beginning of college in 1969.  he became active again after finishing Grad School in 1975 and got an Advanced ticket in the early 80ís.  At that time he resided in Wisconsin which is where he got his current call sign.   When his professional career in Human Resources transitioned into management roles in the mid 80ís he had limited time for the hobby and was generally inactive for about 30 years.  During that period he lived in Texas, Colorado and Pennsylvania.  Now that he is retired retired he has recently gotten back into the hobby and has found the same level of excitement he had as a Novice. The technology certainly has changed and he is actively catching up a little at a time.  Regarding family, he has six younger brothers.  Additionally, he and his wife Bonnie both have grown daughters from prior marriages who are doing well in their professional careers.  Consequently, they are empty nesters except for their two dogs.  Other hobbies include hunting, target shooting and wood working.
