Contest Super Station owner, Frank Donovan, W3LPL, will tell you that his ham radio story began in 1923 when his grandfather collected parts and built single tube receivers for friends and family. These parts and grandpa’s expertise were young franks introduction to electronics and radio many years later. With the support of his radio clubs and Elmers, Frank, focuses on the technology and engineering of great ham radio station design and performance to win contests throughout the year. W3LPL is my QSO Today.

I recently stumbled onto QSO Today and downloaded a podcast. The first one I listened to was about a ham who set up a contest station that accommodated many operators during contests. From the description it sounded like a fancy camp where operators rotate between contesting, sleeping, and relaxing.
So the next podcast I listened to was about a lady who has spent 30 years teaching junior high students all there is to know about amateur radio. She sounded amazing with the teaching and organization techniques she developed and produced several hundred radio amateurs in addition to the thousands who have taken her class.
My compliments to Eric Guth who has set up a first rate podcast. I've been spreading the word to other ham buddies and feel this program will be very successful!
