My son, Jaxon (K1FFF) and myself (KK1LL) are so lucky as to have Glen (W7GS) as an elmer.
I met Glen on 80m about 4 years ago while ragchewing with my 5am group and the rest is history.
Glen has been tied up in radio starting with his time serving in the US Navy. After the Navy, his career has placed him in IL, WY, IN, and NC spanning decades of work in the industrial electronic industry. Glen has worked for the railway systems, building massive DC substations, and had two different career paths at Harris Computer at the University of Chicago. “Building Superpower Medium Wave Transmitters” was how Glen described his work at Harris. I understand that to mean transmitters starting at the 600KW mark. Glen went on to be a contract broadcast engineer for many stations, eight at once at one point. WIBC in Indianapolis was one of these stations, and provided coverage of the Indianapolis 500.
The past 17 years has had Glen at the Voice Of America here in North Carolina.
Anyhow, here is a shorted version video tour of what we saw during our visit.
