Hi all you Hamsters. .Thanks for
looking at my station.... Started in
this wonderful hobby back in the early
60's... The hobby became a job
opportunity on a research ship out of
Seattle at the age of 17. Then went
into the Air Force during the little
war in Viet Nam, was in crash rescue
and then after I got out went into the
Seattle fire department... Was a EMT
II... After that I went back out to
sea as a ship's radio electronics
officer for 15 years......Have a 1st
class radiotelegraph license with
Radar endorsement...Been retired for
over 14 years now and still enjoy the
hobby....Also many sailboats over a 35
year period, sailing all over the
Northwest....--My other hobby was
Assistant Fire Chief of the Samish
Island fire department...(:+)

I was very sad to hear about Stormy's passing. He and I had a common bond in the fire service and we exchanged ideas and experiences many times over the years. Rest in peace my old and dear friend.

Very sad news. Stormy and I had 11 HF QSOs over a 12-year period with the last one in December 2015. Always friendly, great conversationalist and we both liked Icom gear. His pleasant voice and demeanor will be missed by many. -- Dave, N4KZ
