KK4BFN Section Manager

Kevin KK4BFN, ARRL NFL Section Manager

Hi!  I’m Kevin KK4BFN, the current ARRL Northern Florida Section Manager.  I also serve as an ARRL Official Observer, and I am an ARRL accredited Volunteer Examiner.  First licensed in 2011, I earned my Extra Class license in 2016.  Multiple thanks go out to the “Elmers” that have helped me along the way — Steve WB4OMM, Frank KB4T, Dennis WB3BG (sk), Darrell N4GOA and many others.  I learn more each day, and that is the key to success in anything!

My home station includes a Kenwood TS-570D with an MFJ-993B Intellituner feeding a G5RV in an inverted-V configuration.  On 2 meters I use a Yaesu FT-2900 to a J-pole.  My mobile rig is a Yaesu FT-857D with an ATAS-120a screwdriver antenna on HF and a Diamond dual-bander for 2m/440.  I like to operate portable and use an Icom IC-706Mk2G with a Buddipole antenna.

I am a member of the Daytona Beach CERT Amateur Radio Team, Daytona Beach Amateur Radio Association, Volusia County ARES, Old Man International Sideband Society OMISS (#9279), Florida Contest Group, North American QRP CW Club (#8844), Flying Pigs QRP Club (#3893), and the Straight Key Century Club SKCC (#17163).
