Inland Valley Daily Bulletin

Rancho Cucamonga resident and amateur radio operator Daniel Craig (amateur radio call sign N6MJ) has been selected to compete in the World Radiosport Team Championship 2014 in Westborough, Massachusetts, beginning Wednesday.

This quadrennial radiosport competition, the first held in the United States since 1996, will be held across 16 New England communities through July 14. Known as the “Olympiad of amateur radio,” previous competitions have been held in Seattle (1990), San Francisco (1996), Slovenia (2000), Finland (2002), Brazil (2006), and Russia (2010), according to a news release.

A career pharmacy auditor, Craig was first licensed as a novice in 1989 at the age of 8, when he shared his home station with his dad, and brother, both avid radiosport enthusiasts. He has had the good fortune of being able to operate from some of the largest amateur radio stations in the country over the years.
