His current receivers are a Drake R-8B and a Lower HF-150, which is used with an Alpha Delta DX SWL Sloper antenna and a RF Mini-Windom antenna. Rich has been an active member of many DX clubs over the years and has been a member of the North American Shortwave Association ("NASWA") since the first all Shortwave Broadcast issue in August 1966. He served as Chairman of the Administrative Committee for the first 2 North American DX Championships (1987 and 1988).

Rich has participated in numerous DXpeditions over the years with the current site of choice being French Creek State Park in southeastern Pennsylvania. His primary focus is shortwave broadcast DXing. His major listening interests include Latin America and the Pacific region with a big soft spot for African stations. Clandestine stations and transatlantic pirate operations provide special niche interests. He has heard 225 radio countries and has verified 221 radio countries using the NASWA radio country list.
