The ABC Television series, “Last Man Standing” is about Mike Baxter (Tim Allen), a marketing executive for “Outdoor Man,” a fictitious sporting goods store in Colorado.

Mike, is a “man’s man” and involved in many outdoor activities including hunting, fishing, camping, hiking and boating.  These days, all these activities have some technology associated with them.  Mike (and Tim) has a love for all technology and the electronics.  Among Mike’s interests is Amateur Radio (Ham Radio).

In the episode 114, “Odd Couple Out”, we established Tim’s character (Mike Baxter), as KA0XTT.  This call sign was “cleared” for use on air.  “XTT” is a bit of a private joke as Tim’s character name on “Home Improvement” was Tim Taylor. So, ex T. T.

There is significant use of amateur radio in episodes 217, “The Fight” and 309, “Thanksgiving”.  All the episodes of “Last Man Standing” can be seen on syndication all over the country.

The licensed crew members formed the LMSARC under the call KA6LMS and used the on-set radios during our dinner breaks.  Over the seasons, KA6LMS worked thousands of ham fans, sent and received thousands of QSL cards.

The show is no longer in production but available in syndication and on the internet.  QSL Cards are no longer available.
