Welcome to my home
on the Internet.
Well, Field Day 2013 is "in the can," as they say. Hopefully
everyone had a fun and safe Field Day. I participated with Platinum
Coast Amateur Radio Society (PCARS) at a municipal park in West
Melbourne, Florida. We had a good time. See the Florida Today
On November 30, 2011 I retired from Palm Bay, Florida
Police Department. I served for 29 years total: 26 years full time,
plus 3 years reserve before that. It is the end of an era for me, but
I have faith that my new business venture will continue to pick up
and will keep me busy.
My XYL and I have
started a business, RGF Communications, Inc., We specialize in obtaining hard-to-locate parts,
including parts for Amateur Radio. We also plan to become authorized
distributors for the major Amateur Radio manufacturers, but one step
at a time. If you need anything, please feel free to stop by our Web
site at www.rgfcomm.com or
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Tuesday, June 16, 2009
my dad, Raymond G. Fisher, Sr., passed away at 90 years of age. Dad
was not a ham, but he could be called my first elmer.
He "elmered" me into the man that I am today, and he "elmered" me in radio by
giving me a Heathkit shortwave
radio kit for Christmas when I was about 12 years old. The whole
family will miss him tremendously!
I was first licensed
on March 14, 2002, which was my parents' 58th anniversary. I
recently retired as a
police officer for the Palm Bay, Florida Police Department, which
has a ham shack in its headquarters, and now in its Unified Command
Center. During Hurricanes Frances and
Jeanne, I worked with the volunteers in providing communications
between the city's EOC and police headquarters, and among the
shelters in south Brevard County.
In South Brevard
County, we have a group very active on 146.52 simplex. That's where
you're likely to find me.
Please feel free to
