Ralph Bellas

I work in the computer systems department of a large insurance company as a System Designer. This involves designing large software applications which will work in a complex technical environment.

I also own a landscaping business with my sons and teach marketing at Illinois State University. MS Computer Science 2001, MBA 1989, MS Geography 1976.

I was first licensed in 1969 while in high school and moved to London before college. That's where I first got interested in DX.

My interests include technology, entrepreneurship, contesting, dxing, cw, vhf, and being very active on the HF bands. DXpeditions really excite me!
