Thanks for taking a look at this biography. My
name is Joe Sammartino. I was first
licensed in 1979 as a Novice. I am trained as an electrical
engineer but have been in professional sales for the past 24 years
selling and marketing hardware and software to the likes of IBM, Lucent,
Compaq, Dell, Celestica, Solectron, Jabil, Philips, Siemens, and just
about every other major global electronic manufacturer. I had
worked for GenRad, formerly General Radio. GenRad was the oldest
electronics company in the US. It was founded in 1915 and acquired
by Teradyne in 2000, effectively ending an 85 year run.
I now work in the Mobile Resource
Management industry providing hosted GPS/AVL solutions for high
productivity and cost efficient management of mobile assets - people,
vehicles or both!
I was Deputy Coordinator of Clifton's Office of Emergency Management and
led the communications team for several years. Clifton OEM
sponsors the 224.360 (KB2N) repeater in town and supports the
communications needs of the EOC, mobile command center, and OEM
coordinator. Occasionally, Clifton OEM provides services for special
events. I was also a member of Passaic County RACES and ARES.
Because of my relocation to Arizona in 2006, I have resigned from these
organizations but feel privileged to have been a member and contributor.
I am also proud to be a member and "reviver" of the Clifton Amateur
The KB2N repeater also supports an Echolink node via the N2SDB-R node
(#283649). Access is restricted since the repeater can be called
into emergency service at any time.
