I was first licensed in 1972 at the age of 16, after being a shortwave listener since 1968.

Some of my interests in amateur radio are achieving high audio quality on HF, using both AM and SSB; and finding exceptional individuals with whom I can exchange ideas and have wide-ranging and free-thinking discussions.

I enjoy learning from the free-thinking Liberty Net folks on 3944 kHz SSB (and sometimes on the CQ100 Virtual Ionosphere) Saturday nights, and from the high fidelity AM and eSSB experimenters you'll find in many places on the HF bands.

I was one of the leaders in the fight to keep AM and DSB and other experimenter-friendly modes legal when several small-minded individuals tried to ban them.

I worked in broadcast engineering beginning in 1975, eventually becoming staff engineer at WPGC AM and FM Morningside and then chief engineer of the legendary WEAM in Arlington, Virginia and later senior engineer for Multiphase Consulting in the Washington, DC area.

I'm a father of four beautiful children, the latest a daughter born in 2020, with another child due to be born around Halloween 2021: there is no greater thing I can do than be a father.

I have been a writer, publisher, and editor since 1991. I have been legally persecuted because of my political views, and presently the FCC is deciding what to do with my First Amendment case. You can find out more at my amateur radio Web page,

I married the most beautiful woman in the world in 2019 and I hope to interest my wife in the radio hobby.


ANAN-10 Direct Digital Conversion transceiver, MXL V900 microphone, several linear amplifiers, and various wire antennas of my own design.

I use an all-digital audio chain including VST plugins for mixing and processing; no audio cables whatever enter or exit the transceiver -- everything, control and audio both, is transferred via a single CAT6 Ethernet cable. I do my very best to have a pristine, clean, high-fidelity signal. I purposely use wider bandwidths than have been prevalent since the 1950s, and am preparing a monograph for publication proposing a pre-emphasized 7.5 kHz audio standard for HF communications.
