Sandor – KG4FET – NET MANAGER

Sandor, a Ham since 1999, called his first net, a weekly simplex net the second week he was licensed and never looked back. He has been an NCS for many different nets, including Statewide ARES HF nets, W4SNN and the WWD net, as well as EMCOM nets on VHF and HF. He has been active in the SKYWARN program, ARES, and was previously the Program Director in the JR. ARES Program. Sandor is currently the AEC for the Kaufman County ARES group. Sandor can also be heard each Sunday as the Net Control for SOUTHCARS on 7251khz. Sandor is known to be one of our most relaxed, calmest, quietest, none opinionated net controls. (Or is he?)

Dave has been around amateur radio his entire life. He became a ham around 1974-1975 at the age of 13 as WN5NWZ, running CW on a homebrew crystal controlled 40 meter transmitter and a BC-453 receiver. Dave says that he is probably a 99% CW operator using a variety of straight keys, vibroplex bugs, and iambic paddles.
