Welcome Friends and Fellow Hams to our New Web Site!

We had the whirlpool bath installed and now needs only the heater controller to be done!
...and the cabinet and vanity etc.

 and now the garage ceiling is finished...
 and the garage door insulation is in place...   Finished Garage - May 20 2017

...as of May 20, 2017 ! ! !

...we've started on the pantry...     New Pantry - Coat Closet - 05-21-17     and soon we'll start on the kitchen...

 The Booth/Trailer worked out really super ! ! !     but now it's Back to Basics !     The Commercial exams are done so we are catching up... slowly...

 If you call and we don't answer... we're probably out working on one project or another.   Just leave a message, we'll return your call when we come in the next time.

 Our 2008 Dayton-Rochester-Cambridge-Los Angeles-Alaska Trip was a great fun... !

 Now that we'll be travelling much less, we'll work on posting the pictures from our trip...
 As we took over 1500 pictures, we'll be writing a program to automate the posting. Check back after Christmas for all the new ones.

Mid September 2013 marked the completion of 25 years in the "Ham Radio" business. In that time we have made many friends across the country and scattered around the world. We started with the VIS Study Cards, a flash card system developed by Carolyn, N5MUU, for a quick and easy way to study theory, and while still publishing the VIS Study Cards, we also published SAM Amateur Radio Callsign Database for 14 years and through the years we became the largest independent dealer in the USA for NCG/COMET Antennas, Vibroplex keys, and Arrow Antennas.
  We have begun a new phase, returning to the simpler days of VIS Study Cards. Now, with KB6MT - Amateur Radio School Code Courses on CD and a few keys from Vibroplex and MFJ, we will concentrate on helping Hams, new and old, to advance their skils and enjoy this hobby as we have for over 60 years.

With our greatly reduced product line and increased involvement in other activities, our schedule has been cut way back. This year we are skipping HamCom Dallas to attend the International Convention of Rotary on the 100th Anniversary of The Rotary Foundation in Atlanta. We will also cut Lawrenceville (Stone Mountain) Hamfest to allow us to be at the Greater Clarke-Washington Counties Fair sponsored by our local Rotary Club for the entire week of the fair for only the second time in our twenty years since moving to Alabama.  Additionally, we recognize the situation of our recent health problems and the need to devote more time to finishing Carolyn's new kitchen...


Our schedule for 2017 will now be...

have attended or plan to attend... -  HamCation (Orlando) FL,  BirmingHAMfest, AL,  Charlotte (Concord) NC,  Mobile AL,  Atlanta (Marietta) GA,  The Rotary International Convention in Atlanta, see us at the HOF ROAR or RVF Booths, (while camping at Stone Mountain) GA,  Huntsville AL,  The Greater Clarke-Washington Counties Fair, Jackson AL,  and  Montgomery AL ...
We will update this list as they are confirmed or otherwise!
