I’ve set this page aside to showcase several of the magazine articles that I’ve written over the years. Click on the images to open a PDF of the full article.
The early articles are from 73 Magazine, which published amateur radio topics and had a particularly forward-looking editorial focus on technical aspects of the hobby. Wayne Green, the publisher and editor, was particularly influential in my early career. He published these articles and my first book, SSB: The Misunderstood Mode. This early writing activity led to my career in publishing starting with my first full-time writing job at Heathkit, where I wrote several home study courses in electronics and communications. The QST Magazine file shown below leads to the Heathkit advertisement that I answered to apply for that job. It asked for a cross between Hemingway and Marconi to write their educational courses. Not sure I really fit that bill. But they did hire me!
I’ve also included a much more recent article from Association Publishing Magazine published by the Society for National Association Publications. It is titled “Keeping the Customers Satisfied” and addresses the work by the Custom Communications Division of the Boy Scouts of America in improving its service to customers and its customer satisfaction measures.
If any of these articles prompt a question, please feel free to contact me.
