AnyTone Technical Support Expert 

"My radio adventures began more than 40 years ago.  I began my radio interest as a original citizens band operator and kept climbing the license ladder until I reached Amateur Extra class.  I retired early after two careers, the first leading various Defense and Consumer related electronics companies and a second career of 22 years with the USAF. Much of my military duty was as a part time reservist however,  including serving as the Liason Officer to the Pennsylvania Civil Air Patrol for close to 7 years.  We began full time traveling in our 40ft motor home in 2010.  Being mobile limits me to portable operation as far as antennas go. My main mobile station is a Flexradio Signature Series 6500 mounted out of the way under the dinette seat in my coach.

Pennsylvania is currently our home base but we do try to be someplace warmer or cooler depending on the season. Good spots to catch up with us, Santa Rosa, CA, Jacksonville, FL, Key West, FL, and any roaming agenda we happen to be on.

I operate mostly HF on 10M, 20m, 40m and 80m with Available antennas and have began the Digital Mobile Radio experience with much satisfaction."

Tom VanEyck

Technician

"I'm an entrepreneur and lifelong learner, who enjoys challenges and loves to design and build. I pursue accuracy and quality in all that I do. I'm a Radio Technician here at BridgeCom Systems. I became a HAM enthusiast following my Dad's worldwide radio travels. I apprenticed with my Dad in electronics and I've extended my career thru self employment in the Information field as well as Residential and Light Commercial Electrical and Construction. I am a certified firearms instructor and an avid roller-skater and I spend as much time as I can when not working, with my wife and sons.

As a Technician at BridgeCom I bring my experiences to building our team, processes and the best products. As well, I seek to become a world communicating HAM operator myself!"

"I've been with BridgeCom since February of 2021 and am happy to work for a company that I can be proud of. I enjoy finding creative solutions to complex problems, and there is plenty of opportunity for that in the tech department.

Outside of work I enjoy building gaming computers, hiking, cheering for the Chiefs, Equine athletics, and fine art museums."
