This blog is about Amateur Radio from my point of view.
I spent most of my adult life in broadcasting.
I was behind the microphone on radio, and in front of the cameras on Television.
That in itself does not qualify one to go and pass the test to become a licensed amateur radio operator.
Growing up in Colorado, I don’t remember a time when I didn’t think about “radio”. Either having one to listen to, or having one in my car. Those were the days of Heathkit, and I built my share.
Now if you’re thinking that I’m an expert….think again.
I just like radios and being on the air, either as an announcer, news person, or using a microphone or key to communicate.
I’m going to use this blog to communicate that one does not have to be a technical wizard to be an amateur. You just have to take the time to learn what has to be done to be on the air.
In the past, I have volunteered as the Public Information Coordinator for Arizona under Section Manager Tom Fagan. Currently I am the Arizona State Government Liaison under Section Manager Robert Spencer.
Most of all, have fun.
My name, Norm Seeley.
My call sign, KI7UP and I live in Scottsdale, Arizona.
