"Last Man Standing" Standing Down

The 2021 television season will be the final one for the long-running TV comedy, "Last Man Standing," in
which star Tim Allen, KK6OTD, portrays outdoor store owner Mike Baxter, who is also a ham, KA0XTT (a fictional call). 

The ham shack frequently seen in Baxter's office, as well as the one in his home basement, were operational, with licensed members of the cast and crew frequently putting them on the air when taping was not in progress. Ham radio occasionally played a role in the program's script as well. 

Producer John Amodeo, AA6JA, told Newsline that 21 new episodes will air in this ninth and final season, after which the program will go into syndication.
