Are you currently a member of either American Mensa or Greater Phoenix Mensa?

No, I think I took the test once around 1980, but wasn't very prepared & came close, but no Cigar. I have tested up to 141 on other tests and used to hang out with Mensa Singles group before I met & married my late wife in 84.

Please feel free to provide any information about yourself you would like to share.

I like to play with ideas & make things that have never been made before and repair broken things. I ran a home electronics business for over 20 years and also built prototypes for inventors. I was a semi-pro Poker Player before the economic crash & still like to play in free tournaments & have won quite a few. Ham radio operator since I was 11 years old call sign WX7O & talked to over 100 countries & used packet radio on Space Shuttle & Soviet MIR Space Station. I played Chess sometimes using the Space Station link. I graduated in the bottom 10% of my High School class, but, Graduated Arizona State Engineering with honors. I was also a Computer Operator, Programmer's Aid in the US Air Force 70-76 in Germany & Ft Meade, Md Accepted a buyout after 28 years at Qwest Communications shortly after the death of my wife in 2006. I tend to the Right politically & like attending TEA party type events, but, don't agree with everything they do.
