Mose A. Carter (W4FWP)


Mose was my Elmer and a Scout Master to the youth of Mitchell County. I first was introduced to Mose in 1948 by Rolan Ring W4OAT who let me watch him repair radios. I was intrested in ham radio from that time todate. Mose was a member of the Ga Ragchewers net and the Ga Crakers Net. He was wheelcair bound from about age 18.

Ole "W4 Free Wheeling Pappy" Mose was a fixture on 3995 Kcs back in the 50's and 60's. I have several Qsl cards that Mose drew by hand.... he was a very talented cartoonist.

I remember my many conversations with Mose back in the 50's. As I recall, he was living in Pelham, Ga. A real enjoyable time. Haven't talked to Mose in many years but still remember him - especially out times on Sunday afternoons on or about 3995. 73 and RIP Mose. Ray, W5XE ex-K4LNE El Paso, Tx

To anyone posting here I would like to find a picture of Mose W4FWP or Mose and his station. I remember visiting as a child and seeing his Globe Scout transmitter and National 5 tube receiver. Later he had a Globe King 500C and then a Heathkit HW-100. Anything from Mose's ham days would be appreciated (QSLs etc). Thanks and 73, DE Milton W4FWP (old call WB4IWN)
