About the Author
Don Keith is an award-winning broadcaster, a best-selling author, and has been a licensed amateur radio operator since 1961. He was first licensed as WN4BDW in 1961, earned his General class license later that year, and then became an Amateur Extra class licensee in the mid-1970s, changing the call sign then to N4KC. He was twice named Billboard Magazine’s “Broadcast Personality of the Year,” won every major broadcast journalism award in his state from the Associated Press and United Press International, and was an on-air personality, journalist, station owner, program director, and manager in a broadcasting career that spanned over two decades. Don published his first novel, The Forever Season, in 1995. It has remained in print continuously since and was named “Fiction of the Year” by the Alabama Library Association. His more than two dozen other published works, fiction and non-fiction, cover such topics as NASCAR racing, broadcasting, college sports, submarines, biography, and World War II history. His submarine-thriller novel, Firing Point, will be a major motion picture starring Gerard Butler and Gary Oldman, released under the title Hunter Killer. His non-fiction book on the historic voyage to the North Pole of America’s first nuclear submarine, USS Nautilus, in 1958 was titled The Ice Diaries and was submitted for consideration for the Pulitzer Prize. For the fiftieth anniversary of the under-ice mission, Don headed up an amateur radio special operating event from Historic Ship Nautilus in Groton, Connecticut. Don lives in Indian Springs Village, Alabama, with his wife, Charlene. They have three grown children, and four grandchildren. Don operates all the shortwave amateur radio bands as well as VHF and uses most modes, including CW, SSB, PSK31 and FM. He enjoys DXing, contesting, antenna experimenting, and just plain rag-chewing.
