Don doesn’t post to Facebook, LinkedIn, or other social media. Here’s what you may want to know.
He is an IFR rated pilot. Small boat sailor. Scuba diver. Tennis player. And cyclist.
Got his first ham radio license at 8 years old, which eventually got him to Caltech graduate school in Radio Astronomy. Built a cyclotron in the basement of Central High School in Philadelphia (1965-67). The high frequency/high voltage supply was from ham radio.
Senior physics project at MIT (1971), built a phased array, stationary, chicken-wire and wood radio telescope in Middleton, MA to observe the newly discovered Pulsar in the Crab Nebula. Attempted to process the observed data with the PDP-1 prototype computer, in the middle of the night, interrupting the non-stop Spacewar! game that was going on.
He’s still a night owl.
