Who is the Webmaster?
What am I interested in ??
Ham Radio, mainly 2 meter, packet, and vhf uhf scanning.
My interest in radio began with the purchase of a low power cb walkie talkie in the late 6o's and progressed from there into base station operation. I started listening to fire and police dispatchers on tuneable radios until scanners came on the market. I became a ham radio operator immediately after the morse code requirements were dropped. Once my interests were peaked I learned the code and upgraded to technician plus. My next goal is to upgrade to my general class license. My interests are mainly 2 meter, APRS Packet radio , and Vhf Uhf Scanning.
I became a police and fire dispatcher for the Village of Winfield , in 1972 where I was certified in Emergency Police and Fire Communications by Illinois Local Government Law Enforcement Officers Training Board. I later dispatched and assisted in training new dispatchers for DU-COMM, a regional 9-1-1 center in DuPage County. The 9-1-1 center handles 9-1-1 service for approximately 600,000 persons in DuPage County. Its one of the largest 9-1-1 centers in Illinois. My basic training for police and fire dispatching was learned from ham radio operators working with Office of Emergency Management, which at the time was known as the DuPage County Civil Defense. I was trained as a certified Advanced Severe Weather Spotter by the National Weather Service - Chicago, Illinois.
Over the years I have worked as an Auxiliary Police Officer for the Glen Ellyn Police Department. I was also trained by the West Chicago Fire Department as a firefighter. I am currently employed as a Airport Security Officer at The DuPage Airport in West Chicago, Illinois.
I'm also interested in coin collecting, holiday decorating, Internet surfing, and when I'm not doing that, I'm a couch potato watching all those old family television shows. I love country music too.
