Lee Deforest 2 meter repeater
Jim Jefferson was elected as Vice President of the Lee DE Forest Radio Club of San Jacinto at the beginning of 2014. Watching Jim’s dedication to the world of ham radio was a sheer joy. He has been net control for several different types of nets and an organizer and an “Elmer” to so many people it is hard to count. You can ask Jim any question and we have yet to hear him say he doesn’t know. He has many years operating ham radio and all of its facets. He also collects old, antique radios, takes things apart and puts them back together, making them work again, which is one of his favorite things to do. He makes things “work” again and this brings him much joy. Jim is always there to help anyone, with anything. Jim is a frequent participant in the 10 meter, 75 meter and other nets and is often net control. Jim also has a great “radio voice” and is calm, cool and collected. Jim has his General license. Thank you Jim, for your dedication and commitment!
