Meet our Technical Support Team:


Sebastian Franitza, KBØTTL

Engineering Technician / Technical Support Manager
"I have been a HAM operator since 1995 and am a long time radio enthusiast as far as both DMR and HF are concerned.  I graduated from DeVry University back in 1999 and have held several technician and customer service jobs since then.  I handle much of the day to day assembly, troubleshooting, and technical support challenges, as well as research and develop new product ideas. 73"



Carly Cornett

Customer Support Representative

"Hello! I'm Carly. I am here to make sure that all of our customers have the best experience possible. I am responsible for responding to any questions or issues that may come up. I also do some of the behind the scenes dirty work, such as digging into lost packages and placing orders from some of our vendors.

Outside of work I love spending time with my family doing outdoor activities and rooting for the Chiefs!"



Duane Reese, N6DMR

AnyTone Technical Support Expert 

"My radio adventures began more than 40 years ago.  I began my radio interest as a original citizens band operator and kept climbing the license ladder until I reached Amateur Extra class.  I retired early after two careers, the first leading various Defense and Consumer related electronics companies and a second career of 22 years with the USAF. Much of my military duty was as a part time reservist however,  including serving as the Liason Officer to the Pennsylvania Civil Air Patrol for close to 7 years.  We began full time traveling in our 40ft motor home in 2010.  Being mobile limits me to portable operation as far as antennas go. My main mobile station is a Flexradio Signature Series 6500 mounted out of the way under the dinette seat in my coach.

Pennsylvania is currently our home base but we do try to be someplace warmer or cooler depending on the season. Good spots to catch up with us, Santa Rosa, CA, Jacksonville, FL, Key West, FL, and any roaming agenda we happen to be on.

I operate mostly HF on 10M, 20m, 40m and 80m with Available antennas and have began the Digital Mobile Radio experience with much satisfaction."
