Hi, I’m Chris Mattia - W6AH

I'm excited to help you on your journey into the world of ham radio. I got my own amateur radio license in January 2018 after the Thomas Fire ripped through my home town of Ventura CA. You can read more about that experience and my own journey into ham radio on my blog.

The experience of the Thomas Fire, was the primary driver for getting me into the world of Amateur Radio. I am now a regular member of the ARES groups in both Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. But, along the way, I discovered my own love for the hobby. I regularly operate on HF, VHF, UHF, and Microwave MESH. I love to operate off-grid, portable, mobile, as well as in my own ham radio shack at home.

I created Wave Talkers ( to help other people like you to get your license, upgrade, get on the air, and learn to be a more effective communicator. I'm creating these courses to help you go even further on your journey and to support the costs of maintaining the Wave Talkers platform, and to give back to ARES teams I regularly operate with in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties.

This hobby has so much to offer you regardless of what your initial interest is. Being able to communicate across town and around the world via ham radio is a truly remarkable and fun thing. You will learn a lot along the way, be able to help other people in times of need, stay connected to the real first hand information as events unfold, make a difference for yourself, your family, community, state, and country and have a heck of a lot of fun while doing it.

I have spent my entire career helping to improve teaching and learning with technology. From higher education, to businesses, and individuals like you. I've authored more than 20 courses on and LinkedIn Learning, produced and coached authors and teachers through the process of creating video based training, and much more. Now, I'm bringing my skills, experience, and passion to help you on your ham radio journey.

Let's get you started on your journey!
