About the Book

SUSPENSE and CONTROVERSY in RADIO'S BIGGEST COMPETITION. In the woods of Massachusetts, pairs of contestants huddle in tents filled with communications equipment. Their voices soar through the air, riding waves into the atmosphere, as they comb through static and noise for a response from the other side of the world. They're searching for loot in the form of other voices in the sky. The rarer their contact, the more valuable their treasure.

A major new book describes the exciting world of amateur radio competition and the intriguing characters of the 2014 World Radiosport Team Championship. The competitors hail from across the planet, from youthful challengers to veterans with decades of radiosporting experience. Meet fascinating personalities as they battle computer malfunctions, getting lost, and staying at the top of their game for 24 hours in a hot, stuffy tent. The final scores bring surprises, disappointments, even a recount, and decades-long friendships will be stressed in the fight for the crown of amateur radio, the ultimate “contact sport.” Follow the action as the teams dance upon the radio waves. See who will be crowned champions of their sport.

Contact Sport is a wonderful book, written not only for knowledgeable amateur radio operators, but also for their children and grandchildren, to open the wonders of science and radio magic to all ages.

About the Book

Reunion begins and ends with the 45th reunion of the 1960 class of Princeton, West Virginia. Set in a small town on the southern edge of the state, it deals with usual themes of coming-of-age and high school, as well as the once-in-a-lifetime experience of desegregation and its impact on a group of friends. In addition, the debut novel, written in the first person in an engaging style, probes the relationship, or lack of it, between an emotionally-distant father and his son, who much later in life begins to understand what it means to grow up as the adult child of an alcoholic. The characters are rich and varied, with the very essence of Americana: high school, football, and social interactions on multiple levels; the music of the 50’s; the thrill of short-wave ham radio; a unique peer group, including an emerging high school rock band; and of course the family of origin, a complex mix of stately Virginians and more informal Kentuckians.
