First licensed in 1999 as KG4BOD, I enjoyed weak signal VHF/UHF work in a fantastic location - on a ridge overlooking the Tennessee River and downtown Chattanooga. The yagi antennas were on top of a 15-story building, and I was running some power. After a move and some time passing, I went inactive and my Tech licensed exprired. By 2012 I re-tested and earned my General Class license as KK4DVC. Shortly thereafter I got the vanity call, N4JAP.

I spent 24-years as a broadcast journalist in Atlanta, Savannah and Chattanooga. I reported from the field, anchored and covered the highs and lows in people's lives. Been through hurricanes, a blizzard, tornadoes, war time, met all kinds of interesting people from presidents to paupers and flew in some interesting planes - my favorite was a B-17. Covering a hometown astronaut live his dream of flying a space shuttle mission was pretty cool, too. I made a career change in 2013 and went to work for EPB of Chattanooga in public relations. We have the country's most advanced and automated electric power smart grid, and the 9,500 mile fiber optic network that enables that system also delivers the country's fastest internet service to any customer in the 600 square mile service area of up to 10-gigabits per second symmetrical. Chattanooga is a living lab for electric power and fiber communciations in partnership with Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

The XYL, me and our three dogs live in Ringgold, Georgia, a suburb of Chattanooga. I love working HF, tinkering with antennas and occasionaly run some power. Rigs over the years include IC-706M2g, IC-746, IC-765, IC-7200 and Yaesu FTDX-1200, several mobiles and HT's. I got into DStar in the spring of 2016 and LOVE it! In fact, I spend more time with DStar than anything else. I use an IC-5100 in the mobile and IC-51a+ around the house with a DVAP. 

Cheers & 73,

John
