Will you still need me? Will you still feed me when I'm 63?
Hi, this is Dave. I'm 63 years old and have been a ham radio operator for 47 years. I am not too active now.
Since 2002 I've built a bunch of crystal radios and small tube radios. I documented all this and posted my projects to my homemade radios website, http://makearadio.com
About 35 years ago I started teaching myself the language of my ancestors - German. I did this by listening to the Deutsche Welle on shortwave. Several years later I took a trip to Germany to see if I could communicate. I did ok.
I now enjoy reading the German ham radio websites.
I also enjoy designing websites for friends mostly. I use HTML5 and CSS3 coding. I don't get real fancy, but just try to keep the sites useful.
The profile picture was taken at my cousin's place in Phoenix, AZ in 1996. (I am a lot thinner now.)
Finally, I have to say that I really like Google Plus. There are so many cool people in my circles.
I attempt to keep my posts interesting and political-free. I don't have an agenda.
