Welcome to the QSO Today podcast. I'm Eric Guth, 4Z1UG, your host. You may remember from Episode 208 with Dr. Ulrich Rode N1UL that the development of the SDR or software defined radio started years before it became popular in the amateur radio world at RCA or the Radio Corporation of America, close to Princeton University.
My guest today, Frank Brickle, AB2KT, took a professional path to music composition at Princeton and combined his computer skills and technical knowledge from amateur radio to both compose classical music and opera and develop the software used first by the government and later by the industry for software defined radio. I know that you'll enjoy this fascinating QSO Today with AB2KT.
AB2KT, this is Eric, 4Z1UG, are you there, Frank?
