The voices on the radio (Alabama)
#1
The crackle of radio static is one of the first sounds Jerry Fiore hears in the morning. From the antenna in his Vestavia Hills backyard, Fiore can listen to what’s going on around the world.

For 60 years, Fiore has been a licensed amateur radio operator — sometimes called a “ham.” His Federal Communications Commission license enables him to broadcast over the airwaves under his own call sign, N4JF, and talk to other hams in any country that his signal can reach. After six decades, Fiore said he’s talked to someone in every country around the globe, with only one — North Korea — not being officially confirmed.
