Ham Member Lookups: 2120


I received my Tech and General in Sept 2012 and was granted an Extra in February 2013. My initial interest in amateur radio started nearly 40 years ago, but work and� travel put a damper on studying and testing. After I retired in January 2009, my XYL encouraged me to take another look at getting my license (could be she wanted to keep me our of her hair)

My call sign, K4VCF belonged to Silent Key, Carl Campbell, who was a ham for over 40 years. He encouraged me to get my license and in his honor and because I thought so highly of him, I applied for the vanity. He was my wife's uncle. His three daughters were happy the call sign could be reactivated and stay in the family.

My background is not in electronics, although I spent a number of years in front of a mike during the commerical broadcasting part of my career.

I currently use a Kenwood 590TS for HF. I have a Yaesu 8800R dual band for a VHF/UHF base station, a TYT 9000 (220), Icom 207H dual band for my truck.

I belong to the Mecklenburg Amateur Radio Society (W4BFB) in Charlotte, NC, the Charlotte Amateur Radio Club (W4CQ) along with the Carolinas DX Association (CDXA). I have received the advanced SKYWARN training. I am an ARRL trained PIO for the North Carolina Section and serve as our club's PIO. I also serve as an alternate Net Control for the Metrolina Emergency Net on 146.940 (-118.8), K4NET on Echolink.

 My only ham regret is that I was not able to get invoved with the hobby until after I retired.
