Welcome to my Amateur Radio site.

My name is Greg and I am an Amateur Radio Operator, also known as a, “Ham? I was licensed on April 27, 1977 as WD4EVD and changed my call sign to W4GHW in 1996.

I was first introduced to Amateur Radio in the early 1970’s while in high school. Tommy Dasher and I were friends and while visiting him at his house I was fascinated by the radio equipment that his dad had. Don and I soon became friends. As it turned out, “Mr. D.?as I called him, come to be my second father and the best friend I have ever had. Don died of complications from surgery in 1988. Even after all these years, I miss him very much. I will always have the fondest memories of the time that I spent with Don. Through his patience and guidance I learned the Morse Code and was able to obtain my Novice license and progress to the Extra class license. I am proud to say that I did this during the time that the FCC still required that one pass a 20 work per minute code test in order to obtain the Extra Class License.

I am active in ARES which is the Amateur Radio Emergency Service. I serve as Emergency Coordinator for Turner County Georgia. I am also a certified Storm Spotter with the National Weather Service. My local ARES group works closely with the Tallahassee NWS office and participate in their SkyWarn program.

I recently installed a weather station and participate in the Citizens Weather Observer Program. Conditions at my home may be found on the CWOP site or by clicking here.

I am a founding member of the Coastal Plains Amateur Radio Club. The CPARC meets monthly in Tifton, Georgia. For more information visit: W4PVW.org

I still enjoy Ham Radio which is the greatest hobby in the world. I also enjoy flying my Light Sport airplane. Look for more about that later as I develop this site.

Thanks for stopping by.
