Welcome to the QSO Today podcast. I'm Eric Guth, 4Z1UG, your host. My QSO Today is with Bob Sumption, W9RAS, who was raised on Popular Electronics and Popular Mechanics magazines, learned how to fix anything from his father, and finally became a ham radio operator in the '50s. Bob was an electronics technician at Heathkit, who assembled the first and only prototype SS9000 synthesized HF amateur radio transceiver. Bob is a consummate, long-term big project builder who shares his success, knowledge, expertise, and history with us in this episode of QSO Today.
W9RAS, this is Eric, 4Z1UG. Are you there, Bob?
