Originally licensed in 1983 as KB4KBS, I was born and raised in Orlando, FL. After college (in Mississippi),and marriage (in Texas),I moved to the Atlanta, GA area where I lived for over two decades. I moved to Houston, TX, in November of 2008 for a promotion and transfer within the company then, 22 months later, I transferred back to Atlanta and returned to my home in Roswell, GA.

I have been an "AV geek" since I was in the 4th grade. Today, I am an AV Project Field Engineer. I oversee the installation of audio, video, and visual presentation systems for boardrooms, classrooms, churches, auditoriums and the like all over the country. I have both a CTS-D and CTS-I certification from the International Communications Industries Association (Infocomm).

Additionally, I am a retired Firefighter for the Roswell Fire Department in Roswell, GA. I was licensed as an EMT-I in the state of Georgia and, just in case, I was also licensed as an EMT with the state of Texas while there.

My ham radio activity level waned for a while, but in April of 2007 I bought a used Kenwood TS-450SAT and began to set up a modest station using a Hustler mobile mast secured by magnets to a filing cabinet. In April of 2008 I "graduated" to a G5RV. It all went in to boxes during the time I was in Texas, but slowly has re-emerged. The G5RV is again aloft at 35' and Ive got a Yaesu FT450D at the other end of the coax..

I discovered BPSK-31 at Field Day '07 and immediately wanted to try it at home. I downloading the software (I use Digipan) and placed an order for an interface. I was so eager to use this mode that even before the interface could arrive in the mail I made my first contact by holding the radio mic up to the laptop speaker.

My revelation at Field Day '08 was computer-aided CW contesting. I am slowly improving my ear; my hand has no problem sending 20+ WPM but my ear is stuck at about half that.

My latest infatuation is JT65HF. I have WAS-80M and WAS-40M, as well as confirmed contacts with 55 DXCC entities including Egypt, Turkey, South Africa, New Zealand, French Polynesia, Fiji Islands, and Australia with this new mode.

I am a member of the North Fulton Amateur Radio League (, the South East Contest Club, and the Georgia Contest Group tolerates my attempts at pretending I am a "real" contester as well.  I was asked to chair the Field Day Committee for NFARL in 2012 and 2013. I was elected Vice President of the club in 2015.

I had a great time in the 2008 Georgia QSO Party, and even won a plaque as the high scoring SSB-only Rover. When I returned to Georgia, I resolved to again hit the roads of North GA during the 2011 GQP as a SSB Rover and return to my throne as high scoring SSB Rover. I was successful and proudly display plaques commemorating my efforts. For the 2012 GQP I operated a Special Event station with the 1x1 call sign K4L. 2013 saw me bring home a third plaque for high scoring SSB rover and 2015 made it a fourth time.

I finally finished my LOTW WAS Triple Play in April, 2011 (#567), but even as I was trying to get those last few, I decided to see if I could do it again using ONLY QSOs from 2011. I nearly made it. I missed working Montana on PH and Oregon on CW.

After nearly three decades of being licensed, I finally acheived DXCC in April 2012 (#46,170). Not content to rest on my laurels, after being a General class Ham for 26 years, I finally upgraded to Extra on April 14th, 2012. Since then my DXCC numbers have grown tremendously. I am now over 200 confirmed DX entities with DXCC awards for PH, CW, RTTY, 10, 15, and 20 meters.  "Life without fences is wonderful!" 

I QSL 100% via LoTW and eQSL. If we've worked and you don't see my end of the contact on one or both of these sites send me an e-mail.

If I send you a paper card it means that I would greatly appreciate a return card. If you need a SASE, say so and I'll try to remember to include one.

If you send me a QSL card DIRECT, I do NOT require a SASE to send you one in return (this is true for ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD).

73, and God Bless,
