"Visit with Friend; James "Butch" Kalberg



Here are some photos of Butch and I at his house in Fontana, CA on October 21, 2012.

Back in 1980-1982, I met Butch because we both had a passion for radio communications. For over 25 years, Butch was a famous Hollywood stage guy & driver that knew everyone there was to know in the movies. We both started with CB radios and later looked for something more significant with the ability to expanded our knowledge. You might say I was the lucky one to have met Butch and had the privilege to be the ARRL VE who administered his Novice exam. I would be correct to say that Butch has accomplished much with radio that I thought might not be possible. I'm so very very proud of him and what he has accomplished, the people he has helped and continues to help, and the personal integrity he maintains in his life. I'm glad to be his friend.

How I miss just to be down the street from you my dear friend; Just thinking about the day I had my garage door open working at the electronics bench when you pulled up to say hello!
