March Issue of The American Legion Magazine to Feature Amateur Radio

01/30/2015

Amateur Radio will be featured in the March 2015 issue of The American Legion Magazine. The article, by best-selling author Don Keith, N4KC, will explain how ham radio remains exciting, important, and relevant, even after more than a century in existence and changes in technology. The article also will talk about the American Legion Amateur Radio Club (TALARC) — home to club station K9TAL at American Legion Headquarters in Indianapolis, which sponsors regular operating events. It also will explain how the American Legion is integrating Amateur Radio into its organization and for its members, how members can become licensed and perhaps establish a club station at an American Legion post.

The Legion has an agreement with the Department of Homeland Security to provide assistance during emergencies, and Keith’s article will discuss how Amateur Radio meshes with that effort. Keith has written more than 2 dozen books, including Riding the Shortwaves: Exploring The Magic of Amateur Radio, Firing Point — a submarine thriller — and Wizard of the Wind, which includes a ham as a key character. He also has written extensively about World War II history.
