Joe’s Place - Joe Papworth, K8MP Joe has a knack to capture a moment in time, a season, an activity or just a feeling. He skillfully puts that together in a place we can all visit- he calls it “Joe’s Place”.  He is such a prolific writer that he’s published a book called “Joe’s Place.”  Joe is a contester, a cw guy, and a very active ham. Joe is also President of DELARA for 2015, so the regular “President’s Column” is now part of Joe’s Place! Read here!

Craig Miller, W8CR Craig’s sense of humor is unparalleled. He has written from the heart about his home and family, people he meets and places he goes. He can take us from a hamshack at the top of a forest fire tower, to slamming us with the report that his callsign was reclaimed by the FCC (it was an April issue...enough said). He does this all with skill and the ability to pull the reader right into the passenger seat as he takes us for that ride!

Bob Dixon, W8ERD Dr. Bob is a prolific writer and an expert in many fields. He shares his lifelong hobby with us both in writing and in life. Bob is the recipient of the 2013 ARRL Technical Service Award. That his license plates say, “SETI” is no accident. His writing ranges from a study of EMP to a white-knuckle ride down an Olympic luge track.
