My name is Rick Blythe, and I am the owner and principal author of Radio-Hobbyist.com, where you find my articles about ham radio and shortwave listening.
I received my amateur radio license in 1992 in Canada, and have the highest level of license one can attain (advanced with morse code).
Since August 2000 I have enjoyed building websites as a side hustle to my daytime job in IT.
The Radio Hobbyist blog began as a Blogspot blog as the platform was free and popular at the time. I have recently moved it to its new home here at Radio-Hobbyist.com This location has been in operation since November 2020 and I continue to this day to add content to the site.
