I’m almost 24 years into my military career.  Airplane pilot by specialty, but currently in an international affairs position focused on Latin America.

Hoping to add the word “retired” to my signature block in about 2 years :-)

Note that there are some errors. (Jim Croce is an example--if you Google it, you'll find a page that documents it was Jim Croce Sr, the musician's dad, who was the ham.) But a lot of it is reasonably well documented.

Don't know if the site is still around, but there used to be a site called "Famous Hams" which had several notible people on it. Many kike Arthur Godfrey, Walter Cronkhite, Barry Goldwater, etc. have gone on to the big hamshack in the sky, but there are still a few alive and kicking.  

In my 43 year ham career I worked the inventor of the  Yagi antenna, some high up Navy brass and probably a few others I don't know about. One ham friend from years ago was a nuclear scientist, but he loved DXing.  

One of the things I noticed about PSK31 operators is there seems to a few LEOs, lawyers, etc.  We, as hams, come from all walks of life, but we all have a common interest in communicating and meeting others of like interests.

It' great that we can all get together in this hobby.

I had to look that one up Marcus.  ...and they call psychology a "soft" science.  Psychometrics sounds like it's pretty hard science.

I'm reminded of a movie nobody saw called "Max Dugan Returns"  A long-lost grandfather (Jason Robards) tells his grandson (Matthew Broderick) that he is in Philosophy.  The grandson asks if there is any money in that and the grandfather replies: "There is ff you pick the right one." ;)

Dan our paths sound very similar. 20 years US Army, retired Chief Warrant Officer 3. Was in Air Defense, Nike Hercules Radar Mechanic and then Patriot Missile Technician. I ran the Air Defense School as my retirement job.

Decided to try law enforcement and did 18 years as Police Officer, Patrol, Vice, then retired as Detective Sergeant. Managed to get my Masters in Management before retired as cop. Since then I have done some adjunct teaching.  The xyl says now my profession is curmudgeon.

Electro-mechanical engineer. :)

Started my career as a Spaceflight Training Instructor at NASA/Johnson Space Center. Trained almost all of the crew that died on Columbia during my time there. Cried like a baby that morning. :(

Moved on to developing Space Station exercise hardware, which is ironic, I was pretty fat and out of shape at the time. ;)

Then worked testing telecommunications and nuclear plant hardware, testing stuff like half-million volt, 4,000 amp power plant yard disconnection switches during earthquakes, testing nuke plant hardware under Loss of Coolant Accident conditions, testing telco fiber optic switches under all sorts of conditions, and comparatively boring stuff like dropping weights on tractor Roll-Over Protection Structures.

When the dot com bubble burst post 9/11, went to work on Redstone Arsenal, doing all sorts of hands-on stuff. I love my job, not sure I'd want to do anything else. :)

thanks much and 73,

Though electronics was my first love in school, I wound up in furniture manufacturing for most of my career. Worked in engineering and management at plants manufacturing school furniture, laboratory furniture, church furniture, dormitory furniture, and wall panels for public buildings. During the last several years of my career, I called on architects as an architectural products representative.

Jim,

When I started out, the whole field was photo/mechanical.  I enjoyed algebra and geometry and the like, but I thought these fields had little to do with art.

Then everything went digital and I'm glad I paid attention.  All that math came into play, and the guys that couldn't transition went out of business.

Retired electrical engineer mostly involved with designing municipal water and wastewater treatment facilities.  And associated work like water booster stations and wastewater pumping stations.  Primarily involved with doing the instrumentation and controls work for the designs.  Started out when the central controls were the big metal boxes with lots of meters, pilot lights, buttons, switches, etc.  Finished when almost all was being done by industrial control computers (PLCs) and office type computers tied together via high speed Ethernet networks.
