Harry Kimball has been interested in amateur radio and amateur astronomy for most of his life. He purchased his first astronomy text for a dollar in the 1960s (which he still has) and earned his first amateur radio license in 1973. He currently holds an Amateur Extra class amateur radio license, N0TOU. It wasn't until the beginning of the new millennium, however, that he combined these two interests and started building a Project Argus station (EM29je).
Harry has been a member of the SETI League since 2000, and a member of the Society of Amateur Radio Astronomers (SARA) since 2002. In conjunction with preparing a paper for SETICon 01, "Overview of the First 100 Project Argus Stations", he developed ArgusDB, a database for tracking Project Argus stations. Since no good deed goes unpunished, he was volunteered to be the SETI League's Database Committee Chairperson.
Harry's educational background is somewhat varied. He's attended about half a dozen colleges where his primary areas of study have been Electrical Engineering, Emergency Medicine, Computer Programming, and Anthropology/Archaeology. Currently, he is enrolled at the Swinburne Center for Astrophysics and Supercomputing in Melbourne, Australia, in their Astronomy Online program with the intent of pursuing a Masters of Science in Astronomy.
To pay for his hobbies and never ending education, he is an Environmental Scientist for the United States Environmental Protection Agency at the Region 7 Laboratory in Kansas City, Ks. He is the Organic Analysis Team Leader, Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) Administrator, and Assistant Quality Assurance Coordinator. He is looking forward to retirement in 2010, when his job will no longer get in the way of his hobbies.
