Former commercial broadcast engineer that got burnt out after 22 years of beating myself up trying to service four AM ttansmitter sites, one 3kw FM site, one 18 kw FM site, and one 100kw site along with four studio locations comprising ten actual studio rooms as well as five VHF/ UHF program repeater links all spread out over 120 miles from one end to the other. Now I work in a manufacturing facility four minutes from home. It's more mechanical than electrical but we do service and install electrically heated dies.

Account Manager for a global freight management company. I'm a small fish in a large pond, I work alone and I like it that way. 6 years to retirement baby, then full time ham and biker!!

I should have added that freight is my second career. My first was in Airline Operations Management.

Precision Grinding, started grinding before I graduated. I prefer running cutter grinders but run 3 surface grinders, manual, automatic and CNC. Have a nice tilt head No.2 Cincinnati with tooling in the garage wired up.
