Conrad's Garage -- Birth of KDKA -- K4HU, SK

Harry Mills, K4HU, passed away recently. Harry was 100 years old and was active on the ham bands right up until the end. National Public Radio featured Harry and his ham station in an "All Things Considered" segment about early radio. It came out in 2001. I don't know how I missed this one -- it is really great. Have a listen: NPR program on KDKA, K4HU

  1. Thanks, Bill, that's a wonderful piece. It's hard for most people to appreciate the magic of radio, which is so taken for granted.

    Frank Conrad was quite an engineer, 200 patents!
