I have worked for companies such as General Electric and Honeywell, and startup companies in Silicon Valley, California. I have designed and built numerous systems both military and commercial.

I designed one of the first "over the horizon" radar systems using Doppler techniques. I worked over fifteen years in the design of computer hard disc drives in the area of read/write. I have ten patents in my areas of engineering. My first patent "W.H. Jones ET AL", Number 2,951,980 was with Dr. J.P.Costas. The patent was used in the first I/Q receiver that was built (AN-FRR-48 XW1). My design work has been from low frequency to high frequency. I am a Professional Engineer (N.Y.). I am an airplane pilot, with an instrument rating. I have the Amateur Radio license WA5MUA. My degrees are a BSEE from Oklahoma University and MEE from Syracuse University. Postgraduate work at Oklahoma State University. While private flying and Amateur Radio has been my most pleasing hobbies, I do have other hobbies. I enjoy the restoration of antique radios. My first job was in a radio shop when I was just seventeen years old and I worked at this job about ten years,- both full and part time as I went to high school and college. I was also in the U.S Army as a radio repairman in the Signal Corp. I started the antique radio hobby after I retired. I have grown and hybridized roses for many years and find that to be quite pleasant. I have an electronics laboratory where I conduct electronic experiments and work on radios.
