About k4vb

I grew up in rural Madison County Alabama, USA where I still live but it is no longer rural.    The little farm that I grew up on is now right in the middle of urban sprawl.    I am now surrounded by houses and face a large shopping center to my front.   Being on a farm, I still have lots of space to enjoy my hobbies that are too numerous for available time even though I have been retired (from Motorola) since age 58 (1997).

Hobbies that I am interested in include:

Ham Radio


Computer Tinkering

Organic Gardening

Restoring Classic Cars
