I obtained my Novice license, KB4LDQ, in 1984.  My call was changed to N4OYW when I upgraded to Tech Plus (remember that class).  I grabbed W4EDP when the FCC first allowed Vanity Call Signs. 

I'm a member of the Chattanooga Amateur Radio Club in Chattanooga, TN as well as the Tri-State Amateur Radio Club in NW GA.  I feel that as much as I use a clubs equipment, I should help with costs associated with that equipment and I'm also enjoying being a part of the clubs activities.

I am very involved with digital modes... D-STAR, Yaesu Fusion (C4FM) and DMR.  On D-STAR I can be found on W4RRG-B 444.725 & W4RRG-C 145.160 (Chattanooga - IRCDDB), and Reflector REF077C.  On Fusion / C4FM I can be found on W4EDP 442.650 & 442.725 (Chattanooga - Wires-X) and the America Link Room on Wires-X.  On DMR I can be found on W4EDP 444.7125 & W4PL 444.150 (Chattanooga - BrandMeister) and Brandmeister TG 3147.  I also use DVAPs, DVDongles, DVMegas, etc when I'm around the house or traveling.

As far as local / regional repeaters go, I am usually listening and hanging around repeaters in the Chattanooga TN / Lookout Mountain, GA/TN area  - especially the ones listed below (being at a 2100+ft ASL elevation on the mountain top gets you ALOT of choices!).  I tend to be on DMR, D-Star, Fusion, 70cm 444.100 and 1.25m 224.420 & 224.560 the most, although I do monitor 2m 145.350, 145.390 & 146.790 and 6m 53.350 most of the time.

I currently own or assist* in maintaining several repeaters, nodes & links in and around the Chattanooga area:

  • 144.920 (pl 146.2) W4EDP, Allstar Node# 46145 - Simplex. Wide Area Coverage. May be linked to other Allstar nodes. *70 to list linked nodes. WX Alerts for Hamilton county TN.

  • Echolink - N9ZEN-R, Node# 68581 - Linked to the W4AM 444.100 repeater, provided by the Chattanooga ARC.

N4LMC, W4GTA, W4PL & W4RRG are club calls that I am authorized to use by those respective clubs/trustees.  A HUGE Thank You to all of them!

My wife Terri, is N9ZEN.  She is heavily involved in helping me with all the repeater installations and maintenance... and it's all I can do to keep her off of the towers!  She's not to big into the digital modes, but can be found weekly on the GA & TN ARES and SkyWarn nets (145.350 GA ARES, 146.610 SkyWarn and 146.790 TN ARES).  She likes the emergency prep and response groups and also enjoys putting together documentation and helping with coordination.  She also serves as Net Controller for a couple of local nets and acts as Auxiliary Net Controller for a few. 

On my computer systems, I run MAC OSX and Linux mainly...  I try to stay as far away from Windows as I can! :-)
