Welcome to my Web Page. My name is Alan McClain and I am Amateur Radio Operator KA4BNI, located in Dresden, Tennessee. I've been in Amateur Radio since 1979 starting as a Novice, and currently holding a General class license. I'm the A.R.E.S. Asst. Emergency Coordinator for Weakley County Tennessee, and the ARRL Technical Specialist for the North West Tennessee Region. I am also a Tennessee Asst. Director and West Tennessee frequency coordinator for SERA (The South Eastern Repeater Association).


  I'm employed by the Tennessee Department of Safety District 8 as a Communications Technician. I service approx. 120 mobile units, in 11 counties, consisting of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, THP CID, Arson Investigation, and the State Alcohol Beverage Commission. I also service 4 tower sites and a dispatch center in Jackson, TN. I occasionally lend a hand to the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency (TEMA) in the West Tennessee region.

 Thanks for visiting my web page.
