My name is Tim and I pee in pools.
I also like ham radio stuff
KB2RMC is headquartered 30 miles south of the city of Rochester, NY and Lake Ontario in an area known as "The Genesee Valley". We are situated within the western-most area of New York State's "Finger Lakes Region" and the world reknowned "Finger Lakes Wine Country.
Most of my radio work has been on the broadcast bands since 1984. I've been a morning personality mostly with 20 years as a broadcast engineer and in programing. I've also worked EMS/Firefighting as a paid pro and a volunteer pro. Health issues ended that but as I still have my voice, people know the voice from movies, national/international advertising campaigns, and internet stuff. Beside the voicework I write, produce, and create lots of stuff you probably haven't seen or heard yet. Creating stuff and ham radio keep me busy while I deal with the nasty health stuff. I am no longer married so I have no encumbrances to stop me from creating or hamming. If you don't have anything against creating and hamming, you are welcome in my life. Find me on the air and feel free to flirt or become a cherished friend :-)
I basically work all bands from 160 to 70 CM, but my main interests are FM Simplex and Weak Signal Sideband/CW/Digital
You will usually find me me near a regularly used calling frequency between 50.125 to 432.1
While I HATE most of the culture around repeaters, I do SOMETIMES enjoy trying to reach distant ones. I also enjoy grabbing the service monitor, heading to the hill, and repairing/servicing these things. Even though they usually transmit more than their fair share of "Uh's", "Hmmmms", "Destinated's", and idiotic political "leakage".

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
