In August of 1994 I appeared on the cover of Electric Radio Magazine. At the time I was quite active on 3870 AM running multiple “heavy metal” AM rigs including a Collins KW-1, 30K-1, and the mighty FRT-24 made for the Navy.
My neighbor then, Ron, KD6WLP (now KE6NHK), is a great photographer with great equipment and took several pictures of me at the various operating positions.
While it was very gratifying to be an ER “Cover Boy,” the photo selected by the editor that was published, was in my mind, the worst of the lot.
That experience, in conjunction with dialing into Ron’s eye for composition, helped me cultivate a more discerning eye for “cover-worthy photographs.”
