A Message from Don Keith


I’ve written more than two dozen books on subjects in which I am naturally interested. Thankfully, enough readers share these interests that publishers keep allowing me to do so. My works, both fiction and non-fiction, are on topics such as World War II and nuclear submarines, military history, college football, writing and publishing, NASCAR, broadcasting, amateur radio, biographies and more.

    MARCH ISSUE OF AMERICAN LEGION MAGAZINE TO FEATURE AMATEUR RADIO ARTICLE BY DON KEITH Hobby to get exposure to publication’s 2.3 million readers The March 2015 edition of American Legion Magazine will include a feature article about the hobby of amateur radio.  Written by best-selling author Don Keith N4KC, the article will tell readers of the publication how ham radio remains exciting, important, and relevant, even after one-hundred years of existence and so much technological change.  It will also remind American Legion members about their organization’s own club—The American Legion Amateur Radio Club or TALARC—as well as how its members can get their licenses, establish club stations at more of the 14,000 posts around the country, and more.  The Legion has an agreement with the Department of Homeland Security for assistance during emergencies and the article talks about how amateur radio meshes well with that effort.   American Legion Magazine is distributed to the veterans’ organization’s 2.3 million members as well as through other outlets.  TALARC now has more than 2,000 members.  Regular on-air nets are held for Legion members who are also hams.  The club station, K9TAL at American Legion Headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana, also hosts regular operating events.   To learn more about how the American Legion is integrating amateur radio into its organization and for its members, visit www.legion.org/hamradio.   The author of the article, Don Keith N4KC, is a best-selling writer with more than two dozen books published.  His submarine thriller, FIRING POINT, co-written with former submarine captain George Wallace, is now in production as a major motion picture under the title HUNTER KILLER.  He has written extensively about World War II history, submarines, college athletics, NASCAR racing, and broadcasting, including WIZARD OF THE WIND, a novel with a key character who is a ham.  His next book, THE SHIP THAT WOULDN’T DIE, will be published by Penguin/NAL in April 2015.  It tells the true story of a remarkable event during the Battle of the Coral Sea in 1942.  Don has also published a book on his favorite hobby.  RIDING THE SHORTWAVES: EXPLORING THE MAGIC OF AMATEUR RADIO explains to newcomers and old-timers alike how the hobby is even more dynamic today than when it was first introduced a century ago.  All Don’s books are available wherever books are sold.   Don is an ARRL member, an Extra-class licensee, and has been a ham since 1961.  He is very active on the air and operates most modes and bands.  For more info on Don Keith N4KC visit www.donkeith.com or www.n4kc.com.
