Episode 374 - Courtney Duncan - N5BF
Courtney Duncan, N5BF, has a humble amateur radio beginning in Texas, where he earned a degree in musical piano performance. Destiny intervened, allowing Courtney to get a degree as an electronic engineer and a career at JPL, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory associated with NASA and Caltech in Pasadena, working on flight radio systems for spacecraft that go to Mars and beyond. Now retired after 30 years, N5BF is as active as ever as the President of the San Bernardino Microwave Society, amateur microwave operation and contesting and moon bounce. N5BF is my QSO today.
N5BF, this is Eric, 4Z1UG, are you there Courtney?
Yeah, good morning 4Z1UG from N5BF, copy.
You're loud and clear on Zoom, Courtney. Thanks so much for joining me on the QSO Today podcast. Now, I'm in Israel and you're in Southern California, so we're 10 hours different, but you have an N5 call, why is that?
