Biography

I love paper QSL Cards. Please QSL direct with SASE if possible or through the bureau if you must. 

I got involved in ham radio at the ripe age of 6 years old thanks to having a wonderful elmer Colonel Charles (Worth) Jordan K4JTW. I got my license back in the early 70's and have been an active ham ever since. I thank fondly of the days of learning morse code on a 33 1/3 rpm album and then a cassette. Back then we used to build our equipment or repair hand me downs. My first radio was a Hallicrafters S-40B which I still have. My first HT was a Yaesu FT-207r. Here we are many years, and radios and technologies later and I still love it. My wife and three sons are all Extra Class Hams. My sons got their licenses when they were 11, 12 & 14. So it is a family affair for us. We enjoy going to hamfest for both the travel, trinkets and social aspects.

Highly active in my church and the First United Methodist Conference of North Alabama. Serving in disaster response and missions. As Disaster Response Director our district maintained a continuous presence in the Gulf after the Katrina Disaster. I am proud to be involved in ARES and SkyWarn.

My wife and three sons are all extra class and love field day as it is a family affair for us as well as JOTA.

Currently we are operating our new Ten Tec Orion II with both a Ten Tec 70B microphone and a Heil Headset on Astron RS-35M Power Supplys. We operate barefoot with an LDG AT-1000 Pro Antenna Tuner and a G5RV Jr Dipole strung from 2 trees about 30 feet off the ground.

We have recently added on a new radio room and are operating a four station setup with multiple radios. Can be seen on facebook, look me up. We operate an Icom IC-9100 since our Yaesu FT-736 rsuffered a direct lightning strike and is out of commission. There is also an Icom IC-7000, IC-706MKIIG,IC 251A, IC 551D, Heathkit 202, 2036, 7041, Yaesu 897D and other radios that give us HF, 6M, 2M, 1.25M 70cm and 23cm in the ham bands. We can also work 11M but no one is willing to monitor it other than Ch.9. We have complete Aviation, Marine, GMRS, FRS and LM capabilities. We are owner operators of both analog and D-Star repeaters at 2M, 224MHz, 444MHz and 1.2GHz along with an APRS digipeater and DV Dongle equipment. Our station has a bunker remote in case of tornados in the immediate area and we operate emergency power with solar and generator backups.

All of us are working on ARRL Awards and would love to exchange QSL cards directly. If you have QSL Cards, please send one, I sincerely enjoy receiving a QSL card and displaying them on my wall.
