Ed Johnson, W2PH



I started as a Novice in the summer of 1963 as WB2SRN on eastern Long Island.  I became active soon after in a novice CW net and worked my way up as a General to regional traffic nets.  I spent several years in the Panama Canal Zone as KZ5DA and was active in Army Mars from there as well.  Throughout the years I have remained active in the NTS system.  Most recently, after getting the call W2PH I moved to Florida where I have been active in many NTS nets.  I am currently Net Manager for the Tropical Fast Net (TFN) and am a Net Control Station for the statewide Florida Phone Traffic Net (FPTN).  I am also very active in ARES activities in Brevard County.  I have a wife and two grown children living in New York.
