This episode of QSO Today is sponsored by Icom America, makers of the finest amateur radios and accessories for your ham radio station and by Nuts & Volts Magazine.
Welcome to the QSO Today podcast. I'm Eric Guth, amateur call sign 4Z1UG where I demonstrate that diversity and relevance of the amateur radio hobby and its impact on society by interviewing ham radio operators, many of whom played vital roles in shaping our technology through the amateur radio hobby.
And while many people might say ham radio, do people still do that? This podcast demonstrates through in-depth interviews just how amazing, diverse and dynamic the amateur radio hobby continues to be.
Growing up in Southern California, I was a big fan of Los Angeles AM radio, 93KHJ top 40 KBC talk radio and late night radio with Brian Williams on entrepreneurism and Coast to Coast with Art Bell. Art Bell, W6OBB, now a silent key was my guest on episode 85 in March of 2016, and the interview that follows is a remastered version. Art was a very active ham from his QTH in Pahrump, Nevada, and his 160 meter Rhombic antennas were legendary.
