Mike WU2D on QSO Today with Eric Guth 4Z1UG

Eric Guth has a great interview with homebrew and boatanchor guru Mike WU2D.  

Listen here: 


Wow: "My receiver was from a Sherman tank." 

His story about getting in trouble after "borrowing" his friend's callsign was really great. 

I also liked his wise comment about how anyone who homebrews simple gear will collect some "wallpaper" from official observers and the FCC.   Mike is right:  we shouldn't get too concerned about minor transgressions. If we do, we run the risk of becoming so careful, cautious, and fearful that we never BUILD anything.  

There is a wonderful discussion of the Paraset. 

Mike coins a term that we might want to add to the SolderSmoke lexicon:  RetroQRP.  (Over to you Steve Silverman.  Your call OM.)

    1. After the ET-2, I am no longer in a position to criticize regenerators. Do whatever makes you happy Ed. 73 Bill
