Welcome to My World, Pull Up Chair!

As you can see, I'm prior military, a police officer, and a amateur radio operator! Ok, that's it you can go home now! Ok, don't go. This site is broken up into three different sections: Ham Radio, Military, and Law Enforcement. Use the menu above to access each section..

This page will serve as my ham radio and broadcasting page. I've been a ham for 26 years. I hold a Extra Class ticket. My old callsign was KB4ERA and I recently changed to my dad's old sign, which is of course K4DSX. He is W4JIM. I operate on 15, 40, 80, and 2 meters. I also operate SSTV and CW on the above bands. My rig is a ICOM-IC718 and my antenna is a 40 meter dipole, which is about 70-80 feet in the air. I'm a proud member of the South Coast Amateur Radio Service (Member Number 3868) They have several nets during the day on 7.251. To access my special QSL card please click this link. I'm a former radio broadcaster and sports director for WRNC in Reidsville, NC. The station is no longer around, but my days there were special!

I'm currently the owner of the Briles Information Radio Network (BIRN), which can be heard on Spreaker, Tune IN Radio, and on the main site @ briles.net radio page.

73's to all of my fellow ham operators around the world! I'm also working on a new weather station. Here is my link for my qsl cards received around the world soon! QSL!
