Dear Sir or Madam:

Here's a copy of my resume'and a bit more about me.

More specific information and references are available upon request.


I cut my teeth in broadcast engineering including but not limited to the following tasks:

    1.) Doing field proofs.

    2.) Testing, fixing, and tuning directional AM stations of between 2 and 11 towers.
    3.) Doing allocation studies for new stations.
    4.) Improving existing stations.
    5.) Perfecting AM and FM transmission systems.
    6.) Building and improving studios.
    7.) Adding and adapting automation.

I have been the supervising engineer for up to 7 directional AM, and 7 FM stations

concurrently in one position, and 96 FM and translator stations in another position.


My last full-time position required that I supervise 3 full time and 87 part time employees.

My most recent experience, in the last 7 years or so, has been as a contracted project engineer for,

but not exclusively, for XYZ**** Broadcasting.  ( references provided to serious inquiries only )
For them, I have built numerous broadcast facilities,some of which are analog and some that are digital.


Most often, but not always, I have been the lead engineer,
or "project manager" on behalf of the owner.

These projects included:

    1.) Studios.

    2.) Office computer networks.
    3.) Program automation networks.
    4.) Network origination studios.
    5.) Transmitting facilities including FM and AM and AM directional.
 
Some of these projects began in existing buildings, some projects started in open fields.
More details can be found in the   resume'.
 
I have interfaced directly individually with customers and end users as well as large departments in
marketing, sales, and management at all levels. I can work as a one man show, or as part of a team.
I am no stranger to managing and getting along with people. In addition to myself, I
have available personnel that can handle all aspects of construction projects.
 
You can see from the resume'  that I am and have been an innovative and ingenious
engineer in the broadcast field for some time. My background in electronics is extensive,
and possibly unmatched. My background in computers is also extensive, although "formally"
undocumented. I even had a small part in working with the Apple LISA, prior to development
of the Macintosh.
In working with computers, I have had great success working with custom software and/or
hardware combinations. I have integrated new software into existing environments with great success,
sometimes having better success than the author. I currently provide some on-line tech support for
a couple of Internet Service Providers. For this reason I am familiar with networking and the internet.


My computer software experience includes but is not limited to:

 
    1.) Beta testing of new software under multiple environments.
    2.) Virus scanning and removal.
    3.) Software support.
    4.) Data recovery for many reasons.


Operating systems I am familiar with includes but is not limited to:

 
    1.) All versions of Microsoft DOS and Windows.
    2.) QNX, a real time operating system.
    3.) Linux.
    4.) Other versions of UNIX including SCO and SUN Solaris.
 
I have extensive experience working with IBM compatible hardware.
This experience includes but is not limited to:
 
    1.) Installing and configuring SCSI cards and devices
    2.) Installing and configuring sound cards (both analog and digital)
    3.) Installing and configuring modems
    4.) Installing and configuring network cards
    5.) Building and troubleshooting hybrid Microsoft / *nix networks.
    6.) Wiring buildings for networking.
    7.) Building and configuring network servers and workstations.
 
I have had experience doing data recovery off of drives that had data that was mission critical to the end user.
I, with my business partners, have written custom software to read drives with damaged partitions.
I have also recovered data off of drives that were declared unrecoverable by other companies doing data recovery.


Thank You for taking the time to review the resume'.

Sincerely,
