QSO Today Episode 87, Ashhar Farhan, VU2ESE.
Welcome to the QSO Today Podcast. I'm Eric Guth, 4Z1UG, your host. When it comes to homebrew single-sideband transceivers and test equipment, Ashhar Farhan, VU2ESE, is the master of building amateur radio equipment on a budget with common parts. Ashhar has an international reputation and is referred to as the Homebrew Hero by Bill and Pete at the SolderSmoke Podcast. Ashhar Farhan, VU2ESE, is my QSO today.
VU2ESE, this is Eric 4Z1UG. Are you there, Ashhar?
Absolutely, 4Z1UG. This is VU2ESE. Hi. Good to catch up with you. Been a follower of your podcast for a long time and it's a pleasure getting in touch with you today on the podcast itself.
Ashhar, the pleasure is mine, absolutely. I was introduced to you by Bill Meara, N2CQR, of the SolderSmoke podcast. He seems to be driving a lot of my guests these days from his guest suggestions. Anyway, thanks for joining me on the QSO Today Podcast. Can we start at the very beginning of your ham radio story? When and how did it start for you?
