I was first licensed in 1953 as WN7WAG. Amateur radio led me to join the naval reserve where I became a Radioman 3rd class. After graduating from high school I served in the U.S. army as a radio operator on a Special Forces A team. After leaving the army I went back to school and obtained an engineering degree from UCLA. Most of my professional career was concerned with high power transmitters, pulse modulators, static power conversion electronics and antennas. I was elected an IEEE fellow for my work.
I retired in 2003 and have since devoted much of time to exploring new antenna ideas and educating others on the basics and possibilities of antennas for amateurs.
