Gene has been well known throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania for over 35 years because of Ham Radio, Rotary Club, and even the popular Kimberton roller rink he used to own and operate, that drew hundreds from distant places. Gene is President of PARA, the Philadelphia Area Repeater Association, a 501C3 non-profit. He has been twice, a past President of Exton-Frazer Rotary Club and also Chairman of the Rotary District 7450 Technical Committee where he helps all 54 clubs in the District with Technology.

Many of these people are now listeners of the Computer Corner Radio Show. Many listeners stop by his shop to say hello, which Gene welcomes.
Everyone has a computer today and everyone is experiencing problems. Listeners have called from as far away as Lancaster County, Philadelphia, and Wilmington.
