    Any one catch last night episode of Moonshiners

    He was on what looked like an alinco 2 meter vhf ( also noticed what looks like a ringo antenna outside on his house) telling some of his ham friends about his new found hobby of a recording artist -- M-U-S-I-C-E!!!!

    Also seen in the shot was a ic-735 ( with the eq door still intact!! ) -- any one make contact with him ??

    say what you want about the show -- its just good entertainment for me -- always get a kick out of the Jim Tom-isms before the show and during the show but last nights episode was all bout Jim Tom

    Good stuff

    I saw that, it looked like he was on 40m in the first segment that showed him on the air, or maybe I read the frequency wrong. I bet he'd be a fun station to work!

    I agree, good mindless entertainment!

    Odd that his license is almost expired... maybe I'll send him a courtesy email. :)

    Looks like a bad email address listed on his QRZ profile. Oh well, I tried.
