    I have been in Amatuer Radio since 1999. I am a Disabled Vietnam Era Veteran, I was with a Navy Anti-Submarine and Surface Warfare Group in the early 70's. We did Intelligence Gathering and Drug Interdiction and Search and Resuce Operations. I Operate a Kenwood TS-140 at 90 watts, with a PS-430 Power supply, a MC-50 Mic, attached to a Alpha/Delta Dipole at 25 feet in the air. I am a S.A.T.E.R.N. member, a Skywarn Advanced Weather Spotter,. I work with the local Senior Citizens Center helping to prepare Meal on Wheels to be delivered to Elderly Shut-Ins. And work in the Dinning Room Collecting for the meals. This is very rewarding also in the fact the older folks are just plain fun to talk to about thier lives. And they appreciate someone taking a few minutes to acknowledge their existence. We can all afford a couple of minutes of our time to speak to the Elderly and let them know we care. I am Married 27 Years and have 2 children, 2 Step Children, 4 GrandChildren. I believe in the Father in Heaven and his Son our Saviour and the Holy Spirit. I wish all would come to know his love and gift of Salvation too. As each of us know, we need respect for each other in this world of self-centered and discontented people. I have faith in Humanity tho and try to look for the good in each person. Sometimes it's just a little hard to find, but it is there, LOL!!!

    I am American Lung Association CPR/BLS Certified. I have completedthe FEMA PDS Series (IS-00139,IS-00230B,IS-00235A,IS-00240A,IS-00241A,IS-00242A,IS-00244A ) and NIMS courses (IS-00100B,IS-200B,IS-700A,IS-00701A,IS-00702A,IS-00703A,IS-704A,IS-00800B) and I am working on finishing the ISP Courses,having completed these courses( IS-00001,IS-00003,IS-00005A,IS-00007,IS-00008A,IS-00208A,IS-00271,IS-00301,IS-00302,IS-00393A,IS-00706,IS-00907 ). Altogether about 27 courses comleted with certification. Learning the operations of Emergency Operations is a key factor to being able to assist in Disasters.I also believe that all of theVolunteers should be properly trained to be of true use to the Emergency Community in times of need. Knowing what to do in times of emergency is as important as being available for service. Too many good intended people just show up at the disasters, with none or little knowledge of procedures. And in turn cause more Operations, Planning and Logistic and Security issues than they do inassistance. I feel Amatuer Radio is very important in times of Disasters or major incidents in the world. But this is the reason Amatuer Radio is more and more being recognized as a true assest to the Disaster Response Networks and EOP Planning and Program Systems.
