About the Archivist/Webmaster

After graduating with a BSEE from Purdue University in 1956 I worked briefly for Farnsworth Electronics in Ft. Wayne, IN and then spent 2 years as a Lieutenant and Chief Officer of one of the courses at the US Army Southeastern Signal School, Ft. Gordon, GA. Upon release from the Army in March of 1959 I joined GE at it's new communications operations in Lynchburg, VA. 

At GE I first worked on the design of  tw0-way radio receivers, and with time progressed into team leadership and later into the management of design engineering teams. During my 25 years with GE I got the most satisfaction from  my involvement in the design of the MASTR PRO and MASTR II product lines.

In retirement I am involved with many computer and Internet related projects including being the webmaster for two other sites: The Inland Marine Radio History Archive and Swing-Sked - a listing of swing era music broadcasts and Internet sources. I am also an amateur radio operator (K4ZAD), but generally prefer listening (amateur and AM DXing) to operating. When I am on the air it's usually on 60M or 17M.
