Comedian Tim Allen Stars as Radio Amateur on New TV Show

Tim Allen — star of Home Improvement, Toy Story, The Santa Clause and Galaxy Quest, just to name a few — stars in Last Man Standing, an ABC comedy airing at 8 PM (EST) on Tuesday nights. Allen plays Mike Baxter, KA0XTT, a married father of three and the director of marketing at an outdoor sporting goods store in Colorado whose life is dominated by women. While Amateur Radio has not been prominently featured in the first episodes, according to John Amodeo, NN6JA — the producer of Last Man Standing — it is a part of the show and an important part of Mike’s character. The episode that will establish Mike as a radio amateur is currently scheduled to air in mid-January.

Team Radioworld On Top of Their Game Again

Joe Pickstock with his 30.2 lbs Chinook Salmon

Joe Pickstock owner/operator of PB & J Charters and Radioworld Pro landed this giant Chinook salmon which weighed in at 30.2lbs while enjoying a day on the water with some friends.  Joe is available for hire during the hard and soft water seasons on the Bay of Quinte.  If you have an opportunity to fish with Joe you will get to experience some great products available at Radioworld.  Even if the fishing is slow you will surely be entertained with the SonicHub audio server he has connected to his Lowrance HDS unit!

In addition to being a charter operator, Joe is also the president of the Quinte Walleye League which is a group of anglers dedicated to promoting and conserving the Walleye Fishery on Quinte.  Be sure to keep an eye out for Joe on the upcoming season of Angler and Hunter TV as he had the good fortune of shooting a show with host Cam Brownson on the Bay of Quinte.
