I retired in 2010, from the Aerospace industry, after Forty Five years in my professional career of Electrical and Test Engineering.
Radio Contesting, DX'ing, Home-brewing, and collection / refurbishment of old tube radios has been another branch of the hobby, VHF & UHF Repeaters, Remote Bases are still a speciality.

Amateur Radio has been and will continue to be my lifetime hobby.
