QSO Today, episode 280 Fred Kemmerer AB1OC . This episode of QSO Today is sponsored by Icom America, makers of the finest HF, VHF and UHF transceivers and accessories for the radio amateur. It should be noted that Icom is a proud sponsor of youngsters on the air or YOTA events this month in December. Check the YOTA link in this week's show notes pages. This episode is also sponsored by QRP labs, makers of the popular QCX kit transceiver, and a whole host of other kit receivers and parts for the home brewer. My thanks to both Icom America and QRP labs for sponsoring the QSO Today podcast. Welcome to the QSO Today podcast. I'm Eric Guth 4Z1UG, your host.
My guest today is Fred Kemmerer AB10C, who had a love for radio and electronics as a boy growing up, leading to a career as an electronics engineer at AT&T. It was not until much later in Fred's life that he officially joined our ranks, along with his wife Anita, AB1QB. The Kemmerer’s have turned their passion for radio into building up their number of active amateurs in the Nashua Area Radio Society, making it the Dayton Hamvention’s Radio Club of the Year in 2019. Fred speaks with me a week after appearing on Ham Nation Episode 430. I urge you to listen to that interview as well. I'll put a link to it in the show notes page. I'm asking different questions and hope that this episode of QSO Today will compliment Fred and Anita’s Ham Nation appearance. AB1OC this is Eric 4Z1UG, are you there Fred?
