Charles S. Schuman, K4GBB
I've been a licensed Amateur Radio Operator since 1955. My Novice call was - WN3EGP. A year later I upgraded to Tech and my call became W3EGP. My Home QTH was Baltimore, MD. I enlisted in the Air Force in 1958 and in 1961 moved my Home QTH to St. Petersburg, Fla. My call was changed to K4GBB. I operated Portable/Mobile for from coast to coast until I retired from the Air Force in 1979. I now reside in Citrus County, Florida.
In 1985 I discovered Packet Radio.
At that time there were less than a half dozen packet radio stations In Citrus County, Florida.
My first TNC was a Heathkit TNC1.
Together with some Packeteers from Ocala. We installed a Digipeater on the Sky High Ranch, the highest point in Citrus county.
Since then the popularity of Packet Radio has come and gone,
but I still enjoy operating several Packet Radio services.
I am fully retired now and spend most of my time at the keyboard. I've traded my Windows OS in for Linux. I write, document, and code for several HAM Radio applications. I also Elmer anyone who needs help with Packet Radio.
