Other Stuff

I retired from Albion College after 39 years of service.  I started building a Zenith CH-701 about 2 years before I retired.  After three years of building, I did the first test flights of N73EX.   I sold N73EX and it is now being flown in Hershey PA.  I enjoy working in my metal shop.  I also enjoy buying HP Test Equipment on eBay, overhauling it and reselling it on eBay.  All done in my  home Electronics Shop.

I purchased parts and built my own CNC Milling Machine.  I also have a small Precision Lathe.  Using this equipment I have designed and built many kinds of access kits for other  Experimental Aircraft Builders.    I am a member in my local EAA Chapter 304 in Jackson MI.  Have consulted and worked with many other Zenith builders, helping them with their projects.

I have been a Ham Radio operator for many years, WB8BGY.   I enjoy PSK-31 and other Modes.    I enjoy going to Fly-Ins and looking at any kind of airplane.  My wife Barbara and I have two Daughters, 4 Grand Children, 5 Great Grand and 1 Great Great Grandson.  I love building and fixing computers, as well as  bringing older test equipment back to life, and seeing it go back into useful service.
