QSO Today - A conversation for amateur radio operators

David Rowe, VK5DGR, has been a guest target since QSO Today episode 16 with Bruce Perens, K6BP because of David’s seminal work with audio codecs for digital audio on HF.  David has a strong background in digital voice, a technology that is now the foundation for all of the telephony and voice over IP that we do.  As an advocate of open source and the consummate teacher, David shares all of his work while educating us with his blog, rowetel.com.  VK5DGR is Eric, 4Z1UG’s  QSO Today.

Sputnik was the catalyst that spurred many to enter electronics, engineering, and amateur radio.  Rob Brownstein, K6RB, was inspired to find a ham across the street to build his first crystal set for a science fair project leading to a lifetime as a ham radio operator. Rob is a co-founder of CWOPS and its on-line CW training academy helping hundreds of hams a year become better CW operators.  K6RB shares his ham radio story with Eric, 4Z1UG, in this QSO today.

My QSO Today is with Jim Talens, N3JT, who combines DX and contesting, operating CW, and going on DXpeditions into his amateur radio hobby.  A ham since 1960, Jim is one of the founders of CWOPS and an advocate of CW or Morse code operation to really enjoy being on the air on HF.  Jim operates his station remotely when he splits his time between two houses. More on this and other ham radio subjects in this QSO Today.
