Well I thought I'd never get a vanity call sign but one day I decided I would honor the one person that was responsible for my dad's involvement in amateur radio. K4ZXN was the call of my father's 10th grade science teacher in Hope Mills, NC. My call sign change was done as a tribute to Jesse Rhue, the man responsible for my dad, my mom and eventually myself becoming an amateur operator. Even though I never met the man, I feel as if I knew him through the stories my dad has told me.
