FalconIII

The FalconIII is a military radio platform produced by Harris RFCD in Rochester, NY. I redesigned the power supply boards for both the hand held AN/PRC-152 and the Mobile unit for the Hum-Vee and Mrap vehicles.  Each effort realized more than a million dollar savings each year in production.  While I was at Harris I also designed a  wireless inductive coupled 80 watt battery charger.

SSN 651

This is the USS Queenfish – SSN651, out of Pearl Harbor HI.  The Queenfish was my first duty station after sonar school.  I worked on sonar gear while aboard..


R390

This is a Collins R390A military receiver. It was used up until the 1970’s. The R390 is very popular with the ham radio crowd. When I’m not doing design type work, I spend a little time restoring old tube radios.
