Jimmy Jo Isom (KJ9T)


February 11, 2017


Jimmy was the ultimate ham radio operator. A true gentlemen that enjoyed life and spending time with his many friends on the air each evening. Jimmy's passing leaves a huge hole in 160 meters and will be sadly missed. I am certain he has already hooked up with his great friend Bill Decker W4VMY and they have all ready started building some heavy iron. RIP, Jimmy.

I first talked to Jimmy many years ago before he moved to Southern IL. He was remoting his HF station from his car while mobile.His HF station was on his farm in S. IL He was still living in N. IL at the time. He worked for a Horse Racetrack near Chicago. I talked to him many times while he was remoting his S.IL station from N. IL. He finally retired to his farm in S. IL, not too far from me. I would run across him from time to time on 40 mtr AM. He had some REALLY impressive equipment and antennas. I never knew him well but did talk to him from time to time. RIP Jimmy..
