Thanks for visiting my website! I have been involved in Ham Radio in a variety of ways. Starting out as a Novice Class licensee, I became a General Class operator (WB6NUD) as an Eighth Grade student and am now an Advanced Class license holder having previously held an FCC 2nd Class Broadcasting permit. It has been a great privilege to participate in the NASA-ARRL sponsored SAREX missions. I have been fortunate enough to have become involved in the very first mission with Owen Garrett, W5LFL, as well as the very last one with CMDR Eileen Collins, KD5EDS who was also the first female shuttle commander!
