RFM (Radio Free Massachusetts) was run by the Short Brothers. HV Short built the tube transmitters and LV Short built the solid-state transmitters, while Mrs. Short designed the QSL cards.

RFM operated for many years through the early 90s and always had a New Year’s special to begin the new calendar year. The programs were generally rock music, home-made parody ads, and frequent IDs. HV Short liked to try different frequencies – he rarely used the same one twice – and was widely heard across the NorthEast US, Canada, and sometimes Europe, anywhere from 1620 kHz to 15.050 MHz. The station was a good verifier, using the Belfast maildrop.
