One of the major players in the “top band” , or 160 meters is Bob Garrett, K3UL, who as a blind ham has never let his visual impairment get in the way of his ham radio hobby. I first learned about Bob from an article where he was described as working on his own towers and antennas to build a first class HF ham station. Bob is a friend and mentor to many hams, with an open door policy. Just knock. K3UL 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!
