[AmateurRadioLeadership] Introduction K8TB
- OK, Tom Bosscher, K8TB here from Hudsonville, Grand Rapids, Holland MI.
I was a geeky 13 year old when my cousin, now K6FMB and I taught each
other electronics and got our licenses. We then challenged each other in
high school for the radio-telephone licenses, of which we each got the
1st phone in our junior years. This ham radio thing led to both of us
going into broadcasting for a career. Been doing it for some 40 years.
I am now empty nested, 8 grandkids and have extensive in shack QRM from
K8AJ. I enjoy 6 m SSB, Fox Hunting and then I putz into everything Ham
Radio, weekend dx'ing, digital modes and the like. I like what Larry,
WB8R stated, in that this has been and is a great hobby. I am the
secretary of the Holland (Michigan!) ARC, and I also enjoy teaching
classes, having taught 2 general and 5 extra class classes in the last 6
years. I also have started writing articles of "Hams from Around Here",
trying to capture some of the essence of these heritage people
(www.hollandarc.org) Oh ya, I do the VE thing with K8AJ (again, the in
I appreciate Don bringing this Internet platform to reality to help us
all grow of clubs and the ham population. Lots of stuff for us to share.
