About

This is the homepage of Russell Thomas – KV4S.

My Website was created and posted in October, 1999 and overtime has evolved into what you see now.

I’ve been an amateur radio operator since January 21, 1999 with a Technician Class license, via the Tuscaloosa Amateur Radio Club, where I was granted the call of KG4BQK.  I passed my General Class license on February 3rd 2002 with the Birmingham Amateur Radio Club; the FCC effective date was February 7th 2002.  I passed my Extra Class license on March 1st 2002 with the Shelby County Amateur Radio Club; the FCC effective date was March 12th 2002.  On March 8th 2002 I got the call W4JRT to reflect my initials.   On June 22nd 2002 I got the call KV4S to better reflect my license class.
