On January 20, 2012 Section Manager David Fowler, K4DLF appointed me Public Information Coordinator for ARRL's Southern Florida Section. My first priority is to coordinate the activities of all the SFLARRL's Public Information Officers to keep Amateur Radio in the pubic eye.
My license data gives my first name as Daniel, but please just call me Dan.
Well, I've done it. On November 30, 2011 I retired from Palm Bay, Florida Police Department. I served for 29 years total: 26 years full time, plus 3 yeas reserve before that. It is the end of an era for me, but I have faith that my new business venture, RGF Communications,will continue to pick up and will keep me busy.
I am the Public Information Officer (PIO) for the Platinum Coast Amateur Radio Society (PCARS) <www.pcars.org> in Melbourne, Florida. I also serve as a PIO for the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) <www.arrl.org> Southern Florida Section.
My XYL and I recently started a small business, RGF Communications, Inc. We currently specialize in hard-to-find parts for the radio amateur or small business owner. Please consider us when looking for parts.
On Tuesday, June 16, 2009 my dad, Raymond G. Fisher, Sr., passed away at 90 years of age. Dad was not a ham, but he could be called my first elmer. He "elmered" me into the man that I am today, and he "elmered" me in radio by giving me a Heathkit shortwave radio kit for Christmas when I was about 12 years old. The whole family will miss him tremendously!
I was first licensed on March 14, 2002, which was my parents' 58th anniversary. I am a police officer for the Palm Bay, Florida Police Department, which has a ham shack in its headquarters. During Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne, I worked with the volunteers in providing communications between the city's EOC and police headquarters, and among the shelters in south Brevard County. In furtherance of this, I have an Icom 706 MKIIG installed in my police vehicle.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss any of the above topics.
