Brian Clark, editor

Radio and TV Broadcast Engineer based in Los Angeles, CA.  I have had a lifelong interest in space exploration, and amateur radio since early childhood.  My father was an amateur radio operator, which exposed me to the fun and excitement you could experience with this hobby.  I pursued my amateur radio license in 1995.  I enjoy electronics, designing new electronic and mechanical devices.  Please come often to our International Space Station Fan Club website and enjoy along with a community of other ISS and Amateur Radio enthusiasts.  This is a venue to learn about Space exploration, Amateur Radio, and to have fun while meeting new people.
