She claims I never listen to her. The problem is she always talks at the same time the scanner does.

About Me

Located in NE Iowa.

I was co-owner of an electronic retail company in the late 70's and early 80's. We mainly sold CB radios and scanners. (Ahhh....the good old days of crystal scanners, 27 MHz CB's and 1000 watt linears) I got hooked and have kept an interest in scanners since.

I currently do freelance documentary live action and event photography and videography. The photo above is the AirCare helicopter taking off from Sartori Hospital in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
