Trent Fleming, N4DTF
(Sayville, NY - February 1, 2021) - Trent Fleming, N4DTF, of Germantown, Tennessee, has been named CQ magazine's VHF-Plus Editor, CQ Editor Rich Moseson, W2VU announced today. Fleming succeeds Tony Emanuele, K8ZR, who stepped down last year due to increased time demands at work.
Trent says he has had a love for all things radio since he was introduced to a Zenith Trans-Oceanic shortwave radio as a youngster. His ham radio interests include HF DX, VHF/UHF weak-signal work, FM simplex, and emergency communications. He holds 6-meter VUCC, HF DXCC and 5-Band WAC.
Trent has a passion for introducing folks to the hobby and is intent on helping new hams get their feet firmly on the ground in order to enjoy the rich opportunities ham radio provides. In his spare time, he also enjoys rebuilding, operating, and sharing "hollow state" devices from the 1950s and '60s and maintains an active workbench for that purpose.
Professionally, Trent is a nationally-known banking strategy expert, and when not advising banks on strategy, he is often afield with rod, gun, camera, and sometimes a radio! He enjoys sharing his experiences through writing - including a fly-fishing blog - and photography.
"I am looking forward to working with Trent," said CQ Editor Rich Moseson, W2VU. "We both share long-time goals of introducing newer hams to the world beyond repeaters on VHF and UHF, along with the fun and excitement of VHF DXing and the importance of promoting greater use of our extremely valuable microwave bands."
