Hello and welcome to my QRZ.com hampage. I am from Round Lake Beach, Illinois, but moved to Northeast, Tennessee in 1986. I am married to the lovely, Becky (KK4GOC) and we have a daughter, Miriam. She is ten years old. (We Homeschool) We also have a kitty-cat named, Paws. We live in the White house down the road or up the road. I can't remember! Anyway… I am interested in Computers, Outdoors, Family, Friends, and my service with the Lord, Jesus Christ. I attend Apostolic Gospel Church and teach for Sunday School ages 9 through 12. I work at Johnson City Schools as a Custodian for Science Hill High School.
It all started as a child, but the Citizen’s Band (CB) is as far as I went. I’ve been a Ham Radio Operator since October 23, 2009. I took my Amateur Radio Exam and passed the “Technician" and “General” at the Gray Hamfest. Exactly two years later at the Gray Hamfest I received my “Amateur Extra”. I am now studying for my doctorate degree in Amateur Radio Operation.
I am interested in just plain ole Hamming it up!!! I spend most of my radio time on 2m and 1.25m bands. I usually hang out on the 146.700- KE4CCB and the 224.200- W4CBX repeaters. You can also find me on 146.520 simplex. I enjoy working HF mainly on the 60m band on channel 5. My plans of the future is doing satellite work and working EME. I will love to work you down the log.
