Rex*s BIO:
Rex Harper - W1REX
Limerick, ME


Rex Harper - W1REX, has had a life-long love affair with electrons. His father, instilled that love in Rex at an early age, based on his own life-long relationship with electrons. Wherever they lived, Rex and his dad were the go-to-guys to get anything using electrons fixed.


Rex studied electrical engineering at the University of Maine. He started out in field service at Texas Instruments and later opened one of the very first Apple Computer Stores in New England. In more recent years Rex has focused on product development. He holds five patents on electronic toys and games and has developed many new products for his own company and for other companies.


In 1995 Rex attended a local HAM Radio Club meeting and passed his Tech license that same night. He quickly got bored with business meetings and haggling over repeater problems but was introduced to QRP by another club member. After that, QRP was it! Toy design was replaced by QRP kit design.... His current interests involve building things (ANY things), hosting Buildathons, selling kits, hosting Lobstercon, and developing new products.
