Words of Encouragement from Kevin Carey

Hi Frederick,

Thanks so much for sending the issues of Signals to me. I was pleased to see a publication address more topics about radio than just kHz, MHz, and antenna gains. There is a human side to radio, and your publication seems to really "get it." By the way, is there any connection between your Zine's name and the old radio show Signals that was once broadcast via shortwave? I used to enjoy listening to it, and recently downloaded the show's theme song, Telstar, by the Tornados.

I was pleasantly surprised to see my friend and colleague Myke Weiskopf covered extensively in issue #4. I met Myke at Kulpsville several years ago, and he has shared rare CD recordings of longwave stations with me. He is doing truly crucial work in preserving signals that are nearly extinct.

I look forward to answering any questions you may have about longwave, and best of luck with your publication!

73, and best LW DX,
