Episode 069 - Howard Sherer - AE3T
If you wanted to operate two meter EME or “moon bounce”, then your Elmer should be Howard Sherer, AE3T, who has made over 700 contacts with a modest station, on a city lot, and small antenna array. Howard discusses his ham radio journey, travel and ham radio, and two meter EME, with Eric, 4Z1UG, on this episode of QSO Today.
