Formerly KK4UOE, I go by my middle name - Elton.

Most of the time I hang out on 20, 40, or 80 meters, down in the CW band.

I've always been interested in amateur radio and CW since I was a Boy Scout in the early '70s. I finally got around to getting my ticket in Oct 2013, but didn't get on the air for more than another year and a half.

A week after first getting on the air with 2 meters in June 2015, I participated in my first Field Day with Gateway ARC in Cleveland, GA, and the hook was set. A huge thanks to Bob Lear W4ZST, Joe Boone KJ4JBG, Les Green KB4LAG, Paul Nemeth W4DUI, Alan Sykes KR4AE, Bill Barr N4NX, and Murray Baughman WA4MPZ for their assistance in getting me set up and to Bill Haycock WB4DBO in helping me get off to a good start in CW!

 

 

I participated in the Straight Key Century Club 10th Anniversary K3Y event as a station operator. I  found it to be a lot of fun and  made a lot of contacts through it.

 

I work in law enforcement and am retired from the Army Reserve after 32 years of service. I'm also a member of Blue Mountain Masonic Lodge #38 in Dahlonega, GA.

Other hobbies include motorcycling, sailing, flying, music (guitar, banjo, bagpipes, and karaoke),  photography, and medieval reenactment.
