About QSO Today
QSO Today is a podcast about the international hobby of amateur radio also known as ham radio. Every week, [Eric WA6IGR interviews] a “ham” to hear their ham radio story and what they are doing now. Many of the technologies that we enjoy today including television and radio, cell phones, computers, and the Internet were born out amateur radio hobbyists experimenting with electronics and radio in their basements and garages. Amateur radio was and still is the frontier where hams conducted electronic experiments in order to make that wireless contact around the World.
As a kid growing up in Southern California during the 60s, amateur radio was WA6IGR’s ticket to electronics, science, and technology. Its hams were [his] mentors. These interviews allow [WA6IGR] to share the ham radio stories to inspire you to join this amazing hobby, or if you are already here, to grow and learn more from these stories. 2
