K1DG to speak tonight at HCRA meeting!

On hand, all the way from New Hampshire, is Doug Grant/K1DG. Besides being as close to ‘professional’ as an amateur radio operator can get Doug is also the president of WRTC2014. That’s the group that is responsible for bringing the “Olympics of Amateur Radio to New England in 2014. Doug will give us a brief history of WRTC (World Radiosport Team Championships), enlighten us on the many details his team is working on to make it an exceptional event AND let us know how we can be part of this exciting event.

Besides his WRTC responsibilities K1DG is an avid contest operator, author and an extremely ‘radioactive’ ham. Here’s a brief bio to get you familiar with the experience tonight’s speaker brings to our group tonight.

Doug Grant received his first ham-radio license from the FCC in 1967 and his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Lowell Technological Institute (now the University of Massachusetts—Lowell). He has more than 30 years’ experience in the semiconductor industry, mostly at Analog Devices, where he worked in engineering; marketing; and product-line management for analog, mixed-signal, RF, and wireless products. He has logged close to 500,000 contacts with other radio hams in every country in the world. Grant is now an independent consultant specializing in semiconductor and wireless technologies.

Don’t miss it, see you tonight at 7:30 sharp!

Jim/KK1W
