Uncle Walt with the keys.
☂ Caregiver.
I was the primary caregiver for my father, Douglas Gregg, until he moved to the Juneau Pioneer Home. Dad passed away in July 2015. Before then I helped Dad care for his second wife Anne, who moved to the Pioneer Home several years ago.
♎ Legal assistant; ✓ Bookkeeper and trustee.
After my mother Lily Gregg died in 1992, I became bookkeeper and legal assistant at Dad's law office and served as trustee of a trust established by Mom's Will.
✇ Data communications and ✆ Telecommunications.
Before the internet, I worked for the USDA Forest Service. There, I designed and helped build a high speed data communications network linking the Alaska Regional and Forest Supervisor's offices to the Big Computer at the Fort Collins Computer Center. It was the third largest Univac installation in the world and had the most users. High speed then was 4.8 kilobits a second. Dialup internet is 10 times faster. I also worked with computerized office telephone exchanges.
☇ Communications and Electronics.
I helped the Forest Service build the first mountaintop two-way VHF FM radio repeater system in Southeast Alaska. Fortunately, there were competent people to handle the mechanical side of things. There were dispatchers in Ketchikan, Petersburg, Sitka, and Anchorage. You could stand on South Franklin Street in Juneau and speak with the Sitka dispatcher via repreaters at Windfall mountain south of Juneau, Moore Mountain across from Tenekee, and Elephant Mountain near Hoonah.
♆ Radio Maintenance.
Previously we used high frequency signal sideband radios, primarily on the 2512 kHz cannery channel, 4668 kHz aircraft channel, and the Forest Service's channel. These probably became boat anchors. However, I still have my vacuum tube checker.
¢ Clerk.
My first job was as a sales clerk in my grandmother Inez Gregg's Baranof Bookshop.
☿ International Morse Code.
Before there was texting, there was Morse Code. I learned it to pass my general class amateur radio exam (KL7HLP). I also wrote a program so my CP/M Kaypro could copy code.
☛ Miscellaneous
I live in Juneau near my sisters. I enjoy family gatherings, walking, shortwave listening, music, reading, playing piano, and tinkering with computer and website coding. I have done elementary programming in Fortran (IBM 360); BASIC (CP/M MBASIC, IBM GWBASIC, OS/2 QBASIC); IBM Rexx (most platforms); and have, when unavoidable, dabbled with JavaScript. JavaScript now infects nearly every page on the web. NoScript, an add-on for the Firefox browser, is the best invention since sliced bread. NoScript. Don't browse the web without it.
Bragging Rights
I have six nieces and newphews, many of whom have their own children.
