I’ve developed a little bit of interest in famous hams – celebrities who also happen to be amatuer radio operators.
So – I’ve decided to compile a list on the main page (purely for interest’s sake) of famous amateur radio operators.
There are some obvious ones that are well known (Joe Walsh WB6ACU from the Eagles, Country singer Ronnie Milsap WB4KCG, etc.) as well as some that are rumoured but not 100% confirmed (such as the popular rumour that rapper Sir Mix-A-Lot is a ham (Anthony Ray N6IWP)…..
Do you know of a celeb who is a ham? Let us know by replying to this thread. Please provide callsign info with your accusations (We don’t want to be sued – groundless accusations of being a ham might lead to nasty lawsuit situations, dontcha know…)
After we get a few, I’ll compile them into a list and make a permalink on the main page for future visitors to examine and say “My God….. and to think I respected him as a human being and an artist…. who knew he was a ham….”
