My interest in radio started at age 14 when I build My first CB radio, a knight kit C-22. My interest grew and My first job in 1969 at age 20 was a Kentucky State Police Radio Dispatcher at Hazard Post. Too keep this job I had to travel to Charleston, WV Federal Building to take and pass a Third Class Radio Telephone Permit thus My first FCC exam! This job got My interest in Police work. In 1973 at age 24 I passed the 5 WPM code and written Novice test and licensed WN4BFU while working as a Hazard City Police Officer. I obtained a part-time job installing two way radios and mobile phones at a local two way shop again gaining more knowledge about radios. I left the City Police and became a Kentucky Water Patrol Officer in 1979 retiring in 1998. Along about 1990 I obtained a Tech Lic KA4NIH and became active again upgrading to Extra in 2005. I worked as a Federal Court Security Officer in the US Courthouse in London, Ky for five years and was active on the 2 meter every morning and evening as I traveled to work. I now am Retired! . My other interests are touring the US on a Harley Davidson Motorcycle during the warm months(shown above with My Wife Patti riding at Deals Gap in NC). My shacks primary station is a Kenwood TS-590S added pep with an Ameritron AL-811H on the HF Bands using homemade dipoles and a Cushcraft R6000 vertical.A Yaesu FT-8900 is used for 2,440,6,10 meter fm and a Jetstream JT220M for 220. I monitor KY Statewide DMR on TYT MD-380 through a hotspot in My shack.  I have served as President of Kentucky Mountains Amateur Radio Club for several years and am a field stocked ARRL VE.
