New Ham Message
'Ham Nut' is someone who has spent a lot of time sharing the Amateur Radio Service (Ham) hobby for over 16+ years. Mostly through the means of the internet via web message boards, chats and emails. Our station is readily available for visits and sharing any ham radio info we may have. Coffee pot's always ready!!
Originally licensed in April of 2000 as KG4HKY I soon found myself asking questions about the various aspects of this hobby. And, after going unanswered, I found very little local support from the only radio club/group then -- See: WR4Y via QRZ.COM. Seems nobody had the time, patience or desire to help?? Does that sound familiar to you as an inquisitive NEW ham?
Today this club/group no longer exists. Repeater has been taken over by an individual with no club ties at all!
Thanks to QSL.NET, we've been able to bring about a renewed interest in this ever exciting hobby! Via it's HTML web page helps for web site creating info? Special thanks to my 'notepad buddy' John Ball LA0EM I've come to be able to create more viewer friendly informative web sites. 'Ham Nut's World' was originally at MSN's groups until they did away with them. Met a lot of folks with like minds back there. Later, at N4EMP.COM. A domain I owned for several years until it's server began increasing hosting prices for bandwith use. Today, I rely on cheaper means for web site needs. And am constantly studying for better ways to write informative web pages. We give generously to QSL.NET server hosts each year in our appreciation of their allowing us to continue in our internet media pages.
Today, I still find myself going it alone for the most part in the ham radio hobby. There are just no true 'family-friendly' groups around this immediate area. Although there are other ham radio groups around I'd rather not attempt to become involved again. Some folks just don't want our thoughts or beliefs to be shared I guess? Myself, my wife Carol (N4VBS) and son Timothy (K4TEP) always try to be available in times of severe weather, emergencies or local disasters such as the deadly tornado of April 27, 2011. My son and I spent several long hours manning a VHF radio with others involved in an EMERGENCY NET at that memorable time. All local area ham and public service frequencies monitored!
NOTE: You'll find a lot more information about what we're involved with by visiting the other pages available here. Our 'Events' aren't always readily made availabe and are always subject to changes.
