The NZ5V Technical Team
The Tech Team
The Tech Team is the core group of hams involved with me that plan, implement, and maintain the privately owned repeaters, electronics labs and computers that make these projects possible, both on the internet and on the ham bands.
If you have excellent technical skills, test equipment, time, energy, resources, and the ability to work well with other intelligent, capable people, drop us a line and communicate your ideas and interests and what you see your role as a member on the tech team could be.
This is an "over-achiever's group". We are all pretty serious about Ham Radio as a hobby. For all of us, its not the only thing we do, as wives, children, and work come first, but the technical team members are all people who know that just talking about it won't make it happen.
Gary Peterson and Joe Peterson are not related, but have many common points of interest. Gary was first licensed in 1975, as a novice, and later upgraded to General. After letting his license lapse, Gary re-tested in 2000, and went from nothing to Extra Class in 30 days. He has a well equiped radio lab, and a machine shop. His two primary areas of expertise are duplexers and VHF/UHF antennas.
Richard has a BSEE from Cal Poly, Pomona CA 1964, was in the USAF from 1964 to 1984 as a Communications Officer, then spent six Years with E Systems (Air and ground Communications), 6 Years with UPS (Radio Testing), then 1 Year with Western Wireless doing GSM Cellular Design, and 3 Years with GTE International (Cellular System Design, Operations, & Maintenance).
Charles is also a relativly new ham, but he has an excellent computer networking and electronics background. Charles made Extra Class here a while back. Currently he is a Support Analyst with a computer company. Charles is the Motorola resource person.
