My Ham Radio Interests
Hi and thanks for visiting my page! I have this page to meet fellow ham radio operators and others interested in ham radio and communications. My call is KJ4ENS. I'm a General Class Licensee, an Accredited ARRL Volunteer Examiner (VE), and ARRL Field Examiner (CE).

I actually found ham radio sort of by accident, kinda sorta. It's kind of fun to remember my childhood and radio. My dad actually was into CB and so, like father like son. I still hold the CB call of KSL-9100, even though the FCC no longer governs 11 meters, it's still nice to see that old license on the shack wall.

I contest and do special operating events. I LOVE IT!!! I am very active on EchoLink (node #396255), and CQ100. On CQ100 I monitor 14.200mhz 24/7. Give me a call sometime. I love to trade QSL cards, send me yours and I'll send you mine (look me up on www.qrz.com..

I monitor 145.270, 147.150, 147.440, 147.045, 146.520 and 145.190mhz 2 meters, and 7.185 to 7.200mhz on HF.

I have always been interested in weather and hold Skywarn Spotter basic and advanced certificates from the National Weather Service.
