Episode 170 - Larry Staples - W0AIB
Larry Staples, W0AIB, is the publisher of Larry’s List, a regular email message center that updates Kansas City amateur radio operators with the latest news, events, and rigs for sale. As an active amateur radio operator for almost sixty years, Larry believes that the ultimate goal of ham radio is to get to know people, face to face, for the “eyeball” contact. W0AIB is my QSO Today.
