    Yesterday's espisode featured Jim Tom trying to kickstart is music career and in two scenes he is shown using a ham radio to talk to a friend. Did some research and found his call sign. KS4YD. Now his is no "Last Man Standing" star, but to goes to show that ham radio is showing up more and more on television.

    How do you KNOW he's KS4YD??


    I am a ham. I am not a moonshiner; I do not gloat in ignorance; and I work hard everyday to better myself and the world around me.

    I am APPALLED by this guy! Life is not 'come as you are'. This guy (Jim Tom) is slimed and proud of original opinion. Yours may differ.

    You understand that what he is doing is illegal, no?

    Chip, I hope you honestly don't think that he is really a moonshiner.

    Im glad someone said it .
    You'd be shock to see how many folks think those repo ,pawn ,storage auction and other reality shows are real.
    If I want reality tv at its best ill catch a rerun of Cops.

    Come on guys, IT"S A TV SHOW. Made for TV. By the way, I bet he's making a heck of a lot more $$ than most of us. I, for one, think it's cool he's a ham. " Amish Mafia", I lived in & around the Amish country here in PA, for 62 years & never heard of them. It's TV !

    Yes, really do you think they are gonna follow these guys around with cameras, broadcast it on National TV doing illegal activities, lol , NOT Its all made for TV. That's why I thought the show wasn't worth watching, Too many of these on now.. Besides Honey Boo Boo is on at the same time....

    I agree. Somewhere there is a director yelling "Cut" and a producer wringing their hands, writers who are redoing the script and a boom mike operator trying to keep up.
