Ham Episode to Air on "Last Man Standing"

Ham radio has finally played a part in an episode of ABC's comedy "Last Man Standing," starring Tim Allen as outdoorsman Mike Baxter. An episode taped in February and scheduled to air in mid-March includes a cast member (not Allen) calling in from a portable HF station while hiking in the Amazon.

Baxter's real ham station and fictional call sign, KA0XTT, have been fixtures on the show for the past two seasons, but only in the background.

The program airs Friday nights at 8 Eastern and Pacific time, 7 Central, on ABC. If you missed the episode (#217), it should also be available for viewing online via the "ABC Player" app or from the ABC website.
