I was born November 25, 1939. Attended all public schooling through the 12th grade. Graduated from Central High School In Pueblo, Colorado in 1957. I passed my Conditional Class Ham Radio license in 1955. I Attended vocational classes at the former SCSC college in Pueblo. Obtained First Class Radiotelephone license, and worked for a local radio station as part time transmitter engineer for a little over a year. Worked 2 years on B&W television receivers, and 2 years for Uncle Sam as a civil servant. I was in the US Navy for 6 years, two years on active duty, and 4 years reserve duty. After being employed for the last 33 years in two-way radio and instrumentation, I am now retired and enjoying my hobbies and free time in general. My hobbies are Ham Radio, electric welding, computer pogramming and target shooting.

This program works both with Windows or DOS, and both are included in a self extracting zipped file named RFSFX.EXE. This file is available for direct download from or .
