Amateur radio is a big tent with an appeal for every amateur’s special interest.  Once a QRO DX operator, the new magic of ham radio  for Don Minkoff NK6A, came from turning down the power to QRP levels and getting out of the QTH to the great outdoors and working SOTA, or Summits on the Air.  Don shares his ham radio story and so much more in this QSO Today.

Someone said some place, that if you want to get stuff done, give it to a busy person.  My guest this week is Dave Prestel, W8AJR.  Dave is a busy person who as a volunteer for many ham radio organizations in Howard County, Maryland, just gets stuff done to the benefit of the amateur radio community and his larger community.  He is my QSO Today.
