Introduction I've been involved with technology all my life, but mostly as it applies to media. I was first licensed as an amateur radio operator...ham radio...in 1961 at the age of 13 as WN4BDW...later WA4BDW. I changed my call sign to N4KC in the 1970s when I got my Extra Class license. I enjoyed a 22-year career in broadcasting and was twice named BILLBOARD magazine's "Broadcast Personality of the Year." I then developed and marketed software to the media and advertising agencies, including a 4-year run with Arbitron, the radio ratings company. Until my retirement in May 2012, I was senior vice-president of advertising and communications for a chain of career colleges headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama. I'm also an author with over 25 books in print. My personal web site is www.donkeith.com, where you can find info on the books. My ham radio site is www.n4kc.com. I post articles there I hope are of interest to other amateur radio enthusiasts, and especially newcomers to our wonderful hobby.
