KB2RMC operates primarily on VHF-UHF on SSB but is also regularly heard on the HF Bands.  

My employment history is varied however most of my adult life has been consumed as a radio broadcaster, mostly as a morning host. My other broadcast pursuits have included being a broadcast engineer (also instructor/mentor at the college level), programming, and management. I have done regular voice work for over 30 years voicing national ads (example: The Dew Crew Guy) and occassionally doing characters for movies and cartoons. Most of my movie "credits" are as a stock background voice, usually a "American Sounding, Boss Top 40 DJ Playing In The Background As The Knife Weilding Criminal Prepares To Stab The Unsuspecting Victim In The Shower".

 

I've also worked in human services as an EMT-Advanced/Firefighter, substance abuse crisis counselor, supervisor in programs for folks with developmental disabilities, and as a residential therapist for children with dangerous sexual behaviors. Recently I expanded my business interests to include the management aspects in the live rock and roll and entertainment industry. My hope is that I can be operating more from the road soon. Tour busses, hotel rooms, and portable from neat locations. Some serious medical issues have kind of grounded me to my little rectangular shaped home, but I am working dillegently to be as involved in my work life and fun time life as humanly possible.

Sitting around being sick ain't not no good for nobody. Especially for ones skills involving the use of the English language; especially grammar.

 

While I do enjoy VHF Contesting and Hilltopping, most of my time is spent QSOing with itinerate hams (QRPers, SOTA, hikers, campers, maritimers, and aviation) and with those who enjoy experimenting with the radio sciences as much as I do. ​My favorite bands are 40, 20, 17, 10, and 6. I am currently restoring a great old boat anchor 6 meter Gonset IV am rig. If I had to pick only one band to operate on, it would be 50 mhz on AM mode. There are many great hams with great sounding stations on 50.400 am every day!! Tune in yourself and maybe catch the AM Bug. 

 

The Newest Addition To KB2RMC Is A Remote Shack!!

My Main station is at grid FN12dr but some friends and I have started working about 35 miles further South of the main station. While still in FN12, the xtra distance gives me and even quieter location and about 700 more feet in elevation above sea level. The location is in NYS Wine Country in the Finger Lakes Region up above Keuka Lake. At the base of the main tower one can look out and see the Glenn H Curtiss Aviation Museum as well as the vineyards and production operation of Dr Konstantin Frank who ignited the Vinifera Revolution. I'll post more as we experiment some more and get a more stable operation going up there. Right now I am limited to 40 meters 500 watts on HF and 2 meter SSB at 50 watts. 

 

I also enjoy participating in a few public service nets, primarily from my main shack here at home. With the help of many great hams and professional Emergency Service Providers, I have trained hard to be the best support to other humans and the Amateur Radio Service that I can be.

 

Nets Include:

Maritime Mobile Service Net on 14.300 - NCS two days a week

Western District Net - Local 2M FM NTS Traffic Net   

Rochester VHF Group - 6 and 2 Meter SSB Nets

Eastern Area Great Lakes Service Net
