Greetings from George in Fayetteville, Georgia, USA.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I got started in radio as a hobby, by listening to the AM broadcast band back in the 1960s. This led to SWLing using a small transistor HF radio that my grandfather loaned me. I loved listening to Radio Moscow and the BBC World Service, but then noticed that there were people talking to each other on HF. My father explained that these were "ham radio operators". Well, I had to get involved with this hobby; so by 1979 I passed my Novice exam, adminstered by my first "Elmer", K4OKS, in my home town of Sandersville, GA. My first call sign was KA4GOM. A few months later, I drove to Atlanta, GA., to take my General class exam from the FCC Field Office in 1980.

By 1982, while in the United States Air Force in Mississippi, I passed my Advanced (KC5JE) and Extra Class (KS5L) examinations. By 1986, we moved back to Georgia and I received the callsign AB4KN.

Today, I enjoy DXing, and regular ragchews with new friends that I make on the airwaves. You can find me usually on PSK31, JT65, JT9, and RTTY. However, I also enjoy CW and Phone.

I am married and have two grown sons, one grandson, and a calico cat.

Besides ham radio, my other interests include:

Gardening

Astronomy

Home Weather stations
