Biography:

Jerry Begel has been a Ham Radio Operator since 1957, and holds the call letters W9NPI. He is a Life Member of the American Radio Relay League, and has necessarily evolved over the years with the sweeping changes in our technology.

 

He is a retired Electronic Technician and Training & Development Specialist.   Jerry has spent the past six years as Education Chairman for the Hazel Park (MI) Amateur Radio Club, teaching and organizing classes and FCC exams for the three levels of Amateur Licensing.

 

Jerry has created six lectures about:

  • The History of Telegraphy (Three parts)
  • The Singing Arc: Unconventional RF Transmission Techniques
  • A brief History of Military Communications
  • A brief History of Recording

 

He has presented at four International Conventions of the Antique Wireless Association, and lectures at Libraries, Museums, and Amateur Radio Clubs in the Detroit Metropolitan Area.

 

Jerry mainly uses Morse Code and digital communications on the Ham bands, with his new tower and HF antenna arrays. He was involved in the Military Affiliate Radio System (MARS) and Detroit Civil Defense during the “dangerous” 1960’s, and once specialized in converting War Surplus radio equipment to Ham use. He is working  on his next lecture: Do you REALLY need a Tower? Things we never thought of.
