Bob Finch, W9YA

Bob Finch, W9YA, built his first analog computer 53 years ago using M&Ms and lined notebook paper. Since then he has been blessed to be able to continue exploring the frontiers of engineering, computing, and rocket flight. Nominated to Who’s Who by the then-President of Purdue University for his pioneering work in communications, Bob was also involved in developing the world’s first self-healing computer operating system and is one of the “original seven” that formulated the world’s most popular independent version of the Linux operating system, ArchLinux. Bob lives and works in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and still finds ham radio to be fun and exciting after 50+ years.
