May 22, 2012: Wayne Overbeck: A mouse that roared: How a little club in East Texas outscored all the big eastern clubs in a VHF contest

Wayne Overbeck, N6NB, was first licensed in 1957 and has been involved in many aspects of amateur radio since then. A past ARRL vice director, Wayne holds Ph.D. and J.D. degrees. He is a former communications attorney and professor of communications at California State University, Fullerton, now retired. His interests in amateur radio include antennas and VHF-UHF-microwave contesting. He has an 8-acre antenna farm in the mountains near Tehachapi. Although the four buildings there were all destroyed by a forest fire in 2011, the 2 meter beacon was back on the air a month after the fire.
