Episode 160 - Bill Kennamer - K5FUV
Have you ever wondered what effort it takes for the ARRL to process up to ten thousand DXCC applications per year, not to mention the all of the other contests and awards that once required QSL cards from each side of a contact to confirm it? My QSO this week is with Bill Kennamer, K5FUV, who used to be the guy responsible for DXCC and other ARRL awards. We hear Bill’s ham radio story in this QSO Today.
