Bob Burns

Wiki Platform: Lead Manager and Administrator

Bob's interest in radios and electronics dates back to the late 1960's when his older brother brought home some Heathkits to assemble for a local technical school. Bob bought his first scanner, a 16-channel Uniden BC100XL, in 1985. His first amateur radio transceiver was a Yaesu FT-23R that he purchased soon after becoming a licensed amateur radio operator in 1991. He has since owned more scanners, amateur radios, and commercial radios than he cares to count.

Bob is an active amateur radio operator and severe weather spotter. He is also trustee for an amateur radio repeater in Danville, Indiana. His primary scanning interests are public safety and railroads. Bob has a long history in the online radio community going back to CompuServe's HAMNET forum. In addition to his radio hobbies, Bob is a railfan, an official with the Sports Car Club of America, webmaster for a small handful of web sites, and he looks after a friend's Ford Model A.

Bob leads all efforts around our open information sharing and collaboration platform, the RadioReference Wiki.
Gordon Edwards

Live Audio: Lead Manager

Gordon became interested in listening to shortwave radio and local police and fire departments around 1985 while in high school. Back in 2001, as an experiment he connected a scanner to a computer for other people to listen to over his home DSL connection and shortly afterward developed ScanGwinnett.com as the home of the broadcast after realizing how popular it became. Over the next several years Gordon created numerous other ScanX.com web sites hosting other online scanner feeds provided by others in his area and then for people in other parts of the US.

In July of 2008, Gordon released the groundbreaking web platform ScanAmerica.us that provided a single destination for listeners and broadcasters for scanner feeds from all over the United States. From July 2008 through April 2009 ScanAmerica.us grew to host over 600 feeds from nearly every state in the US. Gordon then joined the senior leadership team after RadioReference acquired ScanAmerica on May 1st, 2009.

Gordon's responsibilities include leading and managing all efforts regarding live audio broadcasting on RadioReference, including feed management, new feed recruitment, and technical services.
Steve Jones

Discussion Forums: Lead Manager and Moderator

Steve's interest in two way communications started in the 1970's with a TRC-30A CB radio. After listening to emergency services on a Radio Shack Patrolman radio for many years, Steve upgraded to a Bearcat BC160 scanner which was the first of many scanners he would eventually own.

Seeing a need for a place for local scanner enthusiasts to share knowledge, Steve started up a message board on Onelist in 1998 which reached over 2,000 members and just under 1,000 messages per month.

Steve has been licensed as an amateur radio operator since 1987 and currently holds an Advanced license in Canada. He has served as a Delegated Examiner for Industry Canada, has served as the AMPRNet IP Address Coordinator for Ontario and is active in Canwarn. Steve currently has 3 voice repeaters on the air which includes 2 P25 repeaters and one APRS digipeater.

His involvement with RadioReference started back in 2001 as a Global Database Administrator and a Moderator for the Canadian forums. Steve is currently responsible for leading the direction of our forums and all moderation responsibilities.
