Episode 306 - Julius Jones - W2IHY
Julius Jones, W2IHY, had an early interest in electronics and radio as a teenager growing up in Boston, in the early 1960s. Like many young hams, in those days, the intoxication from the space race and the evolving electronic technology led young Julius into an engineering career and the ultimate establishment of his own company based around solutions he created for his own ham shack. W2IHY is my guest in this QSO Today.
