A little bit about our friend Greg Algieri WA1JXR :

First licensed as WN1JXR in 1967. Amateur Radio lead me to pursue a career in Electrical Engineering, earning BSEE and MSEE degrees from the Univ. of R.I. I have worked for Raytheon Co. on RADAR Systems for 42 years as a Senior Principal RF/uW Design Engineer. Retired end 2019.
I’m not a Contester or chase DX, but just a “Rag Chew” QSO operator.
I’m mostly a CW Operator, enjoy QRP Operation. One of the founding members of the NE QRP Club.
I also enjoy refurbishing and operating the old “hollow state” boat anchor tube rigs from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s.
Enjoy teaching ham radio license classes and giving talks and seminars on Antennas, Transmission Lines, and Antenna Modeling, Circuit Modeling and Vector Network Analyzer antenna measurements. Enjoy exposing new Ham operators to CW. The first digital mode!
