Today, Bob and Lyn, his wife of 40 years, reside in Boise, Idaho. They enjoy golf, travelling in their RV, boating, fishing, and off-roading. And when they travel, there’s always an HF radio that rides with them!

Bob teaches a variety of ham radio topics for groups and new/potential Hams. He runs a local VHF net as needed and provides training over the air.
