PAST KNOWLEDGE SESSIONS

PREPPCOMM AMATEUR RADIO with Eric Anderson, PhD

ABOUT THE SESSION

During this critical session we spoke with Mr. Eric Anderson, PhD (MIT) who is the founder and inventor of PreppComm, the Personal & Community Emergency Communication Tool that provides Local, Regional, and National Communications Capabilities.

During our call we discussed: 

  • Why personal emergency communication preparedness must include the ability to reach long distances without external infrastructure, such as repeaters, satellites, or the internet.
  • The FCC requirements for the basic operator license which requires Morse code operation on HF bands, which are the only bands that reach local, regional, national,  and international distance via ionosphere reflections.
  • Why PreppComm is the only solution on the market today that provides a HF solution that automates Morse code completely, and includes a decoder capable of operating in strong band noise conditions, making it ideal for emergency situations.
  • We also discussed the disadvantages of using some cheaper yet more popular communications options available on the market today.

ABOUT OUR SPEAKER

Mr. Eric Anderson graduated in 1971 from an MIT doctorate program and started a company focused on interactive media. He moved to Apple in 1979 where he developed the key technologies for the A/V Macs released in 1995. He followed that work by extensive development in digital cameras, including receiving over 150 patents. Mr. Anderson discovered a lack of communications solutions for technician class licensees for emergency communications and so developed his company, PreppComm, through which he launched the DMX-40 and later the MMX in 2021 to enable HF comm for Tech class which allowed for the use of Morse code without having to learn it first.
