Personal Details
Kara and Gage

Kara Marie Cain seen left is my first granddaughter born in November of 1997 to my daughter and son-in-law Melissa and Shane Cain. In August of 2003, Melissa gave birth to our first grandson, Gage Jefferson. I have taught science and computers for several years, now just teach computers for Athens High School, The Plains, Ohio (outside Athens, home of the Ohio University Bobcats).

I advise the AHS Amateur Radio Club (KC8DXZ). I am an Extra Class amateur radio operator (N8SUZ), part-time paramedic, EMT and first aid instructor. For SEORF, I am SIG coordinator for the Amateur Radio SIG area and The Freemasonry in Southeast Ohio website listed below. I served as Arch Inspector for the Sixth Arch, Royal and Select Masons of Ohio for three years.

After being a communications volunteer for three years, in 2003, I became the Communications Director for the Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure. GOBA is a week-long bicycle tour of 50-60 miles per day held around the third week in June. We provide communications support to 3000 riders using amateur radio in our ambulances, SAG wagons and staff vehicles. There are many bicycle mobile hams on the tour also. In 2007, they will travel in the middle of western Ohio, Celina, Van Wert, Wapakoneta, Troy and Versilles as overnight towns. For more information, go to GOBA Homepage. For more information on amateur radio operations on GOBA, go to GOBA Hams Homepage

In September of 2006, I was appointed as District Emergency Coordinator for the Ohio Section of the American Radio Relay League (ARRL).  This appointment is part of the ARRL field organization Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) program.  I coordinate amateur radio emergency communication for the 11 counties in District 8 of southeast Ohio.  More information at the District 8 website

Interests and Hobbies

                                        Computers and Computer Repair: I teach computers as well as run my own computers and electronics servicing business. Of course, I love to work with computers and search the Web.
Amateur Radio (Ham operator N8SUZ)
Amateur radio and computers really go together. I currently hold an Amateur Extra Class of license.  I really like to incorporate the amateur radio contacts and research into my classes.   Packet radio demonstrates some of the basic principals upon which the Internet was based. I am a volunteer mentor for the American Radio Relay League emergency communications online courses. I also help teach and give exams for amateur radio licensing.
  I operate a Winlink 2000 Telpac station KC8DXZ-1 on 145.090 at Athens High School.

                     Emergency medicine (paramedic) I really enjoy helping people which is why I have remained a part-time paramedic for Southeast Ohio Emergency Medical Services District (SEOEMS) which at one time coordinated EMS services for 7 counties of SE Ohio but now covers 3. I have been with SEOEMS for 32 years, working fulltime as station chief for their Coolville Station #02 for 3 years. In addition, I am an EMT/paramedic/first responder instructor and teach first aid and CPR classes for the Athens County Red Cross.
