Default [QSO Today] WB4KTF

QSO Today Amateur Radio Podcast - Podcasts


Posted: 28 Feb 2020 11:00 PM PST

Episode 291 - Glen Jenkins - WB4KTF
Jenkins, WB4KTF, grew up on US Marine bases in the 50s and 60s, and was no
stranger to starting over in new places. Glen tells his ham radio story
that includes a professional start in Israel, a stint in Moscow, a
successful landing in Houston Texas, until Hurricane Harvey changed his
retirement plans. Glen loved his early Heathkit HF Transceivers,
collecting Collins gear, and working the digital modes on his modern
station. WB4KTF is my QSO Today.

Greatest challenge to ham radio: Getting younger folk involved.

Advice to new or returning hams: Try the new modes if you are a returning
ham like FT-8, FT8-Call, PSK-31.
