My name is Tim but most people call me "TeeSquared"
Home Grid is FN12DR
My QTH is 30 miles south of Rochester, NY/Lake Ontario at about 1300 feet. Situated on a hilltop near the Genesee River between Conesus Lake and Hemlock Lake, this area is called the "The Finger Lakes Region" of New York State. Some of the best wines produced in the world are made right here. Sorry Napa Valley ;-)
While I enjoy almost all modes and bands, my main interests are Weak Signal Sideband/CW/Digital on 6, 2, and 432. Ragchews and contesting!!!
KB2RMC has been my one and only callsign since I was first licensed in 1994.
SKYWARN and stormspotting/chasing is also a huge part of my ham experience.
Another thing I just started doing and enjoy is working new hams on 2 meter FM simplex for ragchews and contests. It's great fun to work the new guys and encourage them to look at weak signal work when they are able to upgrade. My pal KF2MR went to club meetings to encourage other hams in the Rochester area to work these guys and it has helped increase SSB band use. It also shows much good will. We certainly could use more good will in the world today :-)
For the super curious-minded, I am a single, divorced man.
My primary occupation has been radio broadcasting since 1984. While I served mostly as a morning personality, I also branched out into management AND have been a broadcast engineer for 20 years. While working as a broadcast engineer at WALF-FM at Alfred University, I also worked as a mentor to the students. Some of my students have gone on to have great careers in the broadcasting and entertainment world which makes me VERY proud. Almost as proud as I am of my adult kids and grandchildren
My engineering mentor was a ham named Ben Bass N2YDM (sk) from Buffalo, NY. I try to pay his kindness forward by "elmering" others whenever possible.
In between, and sometimes at the same time, I have worked as an EMT-A and firefighter.
I am now a professional voiceover artist and voice actor although health issues have kept me from working a lot. And yes, I DO know Siri!!!
As of 2015 I have entered the podcasting world and am currently entertaining the idea of executive producing and hosting a syndicated radio show or two.
You may email me if you'd like more "tabloid/gossip" type information or to inquire about "opportunities" to date me:-)

The following video is of me and Ron Boyle K2TJW on News Channel 36 during a STARRS activation that we held at the North Hornell, NY Fire Station a few years back.
This is part one of a video I made for my YouTube channel about ARRL Field Day 2010. A bunch of us from STARRS had been invited to join another group for Field Day, but it didn't go well. This is me picking on that group of our friends a little bit. I also take a shot or two at the grumpy old guys on 75 meters who curse, bitch, and say rascist stuff late at night.
And finally, this is an addendum to the above video. Part One went kinda viral in the ham community and our friends got a bit of a bad wrap from it. So I made a goofy response to the issue I created. I affirmed then (and still believe now) that a sense of humor is SORELY needed in the radio amateur community. This is me trying to do my part.
Hope to work you and your station one day!! Best 73
