My name is Charles Elliott and my Amateur Radio "Ham Radio" call sign is KF4VDF. I’ve been an Amateur Radio operator since 1997.  I enjoy it very much. I like to talk to people all over the place. They are the nicest people you will ever meet.

My cousin got me interested one day when he was at my house in the driveway with what I though was a walkie talkie. He told me it was a 2 meter HT ham radio. Then he said watch this. He spoke into the radio a few letters and numbers. Some one came back on the radio with letters and numbers and they started talking.

I thought it was someone close to town but then he ask the other person where he was, He came back and said West Virginia. I couldn’t believe it. I just had to have one of those radios radios so I went and bought me one. I couldn’t talk on it but I listened a lot. Finally I took the Ham test and passed it. Waited till I got my license and I’ve not shut up since.

I am now a general thanks to my cousin bill, KT4QX. I ‘m no longer a turkey, no I am a ham. Bill has been a ham for a long time. He is one of the nicest people you will meet or talk to so when you hear KT4QX you will know it is my cousin Bill.73’s to all till we meet in person or on the airwaves. You can find me on the 147.015 most any time or the 146.865.

Give me a call. KF4VDF.Any time I will be glad to talk to you. Have a nice day and thank you for visiting my ham page.

What Can Amateur Radio
"Ham" Operators Do?


Ham radio operators like myself KF4VDF use two-way radio stations from their homes, cars, boats and outdoors to make hundreds of friends around town and around the world. They communicate with each other using voice, computers, and Morse code. Some hams bounce their signals off the upper regions of the atmosphere, so they can talk with hams on the other side of the world. Other hams use satellites. Many use hand-held radios that fit in their pockets. 

My favorite is 2 meter FM operations !

My main 2 meter FM repeaters or Freq.'s
I use:

  • 146.865 T-103.5 High Knob Mtn.

  • 147.015 T+88.5 High Knob Mtn.

  • 146.500 Simplex

Listen to amateurs talking through an FM voice repeater (RealAudio).

Using even the simplest of radio setups and antennas, amateurs communicate with each other for fun, during emergencies, and even in contests. They handle messages for police and other public service organizations during all kinds of emergencies including:

  • Hurricanes
  • Earthquakes
  • Tornadoes and floods
  • Motorist accidents
  • Fires and chemical spills
  • Search and rescues
