John W2JLD - ITook my test on January 17,2015 which was on my birthday and on January 21, 2015 I got my license and got my current vanity call on September of 2015 and have not looked back. I am net controller for the Monday am net on the World Radio Network at 12 noon EST/9am PST, also I am net controller for the East Coast Reflector on Irlp 9050 Saturdays at 12 noon EST/9am PST. On both nets we talk abut ham radio related topics and discuss those items. So please join me and check in for these nets. I also enjoy building antennas and advancing my ham radio career. I am a photographer as a side business and have enjoyed doing many projects and working with not only NASCAR celebrities but have also worked closely with 2 NFL teams to do photography for them. I am a father of a 9 year old boy and he is slowly but surely getting into the hobby, he is a Weblos scout and I enjoying spending time with him and watching him grow.

Heres an interesting fact about Weblos: There is no such scout as a Webelo. WEBELOS stands for "We Be Loyal Scouts". Without the S the boys are not scouts! This is the only Cub Scout advancement item which transitions to the Boy Scout, Varsity Scout or Venturing uniform.

Past controllers: K3CFG and KM4PPV are not currently acting controllers. KT7JOE is on the sick list for a while.
