Biography

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. Some of the finest minds I've ever encountered in my life I've found among the Liberty Net folks who operate circa 3950 kHz SSB and among the AM experimenters in the AM windows on 160, 75, and 40 meters. 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 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 three beautiful children and have been a writer, publisher, and editor since 1991. You can find out more at my amateur radio page, 3950.net.
