About me

Hi, I’m John “Radio John” Anderson! With over 25 years of hands-on experience in radio communication technology, I’ve become a go-to expert in CB radios, emergency radios, and general radio communication systems. My passion for all things radio started when I was a teenager and grew into a successful career that’s about much more than just ‘talk.’

I believe in the power of reliable communication, especially in times of emergency, and have dedicated my life to mastering this ever-evolving technology. Whether it’s setting up a CB radio for an off-road enthusiast, advising on communication strategy for emergency response teams, or helping a novice understand their first ham radio, my goal remains the same – clear, reliable, and effective communication.

My expertise extends to various types of radios including but not limited to shortwave radios, ham radios, and VHF/UHF radios. Over the years, I’ve provided consultancy to numerous organizations, both public and private, to enhance their communication infrastructure.

While I’m well versed in the history and traditional systems of radio technology, I continue to adapt and learn about the latest trends and advancements in the field. From analog to digital and software-defined radios, my knowledge encompasses a wide spectrum, and I thrive on the challenge of integrating new technology with old to meet unique communication needs.
