Riley Hollingsworth, K4ZDH
Featured Speaker at upcoming 2016 Greater Houston Hamfest

The 2016 Greater Houston Hamfest is pleased to announce that Riley Hollingsworth, K4ZDH, former FCC Special Counsel for Spectrum Enforcement, will be the Featured Speaker at the 2016 Greater Houston Hamfest. As the FCC’s former top cop, Riley has been in demand as a speaker at conventions nationwide since his retirement in 2008. In 2013 he received the prestigious Sarnoff Citation from the Radio Club of America, “For significant contributions and outstanding achievements in wireless communications.” A ham since 1960 and a longtime FCC attorney, Riley became a household name in amateur radio in 1998 when he was named Special Counsel for Amateur Radio in the Commission's newly-created Enforcement Bureau. His highly-visible enforcement actions were cheered by the vast majority of the amateur community after more than a decade during which FCC enforcement on the ham bands was virtually non-existent. Hollingsworth holds a Master’s degree from the University of South Carolina, and a law degree from Wake Forest University . He lives in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, with his wife, Pat.
