    Episode 395 - Dave Slotter - W3DJSDave Slotter, W3DJS, like many hams who
    had an early interest in radio, but postponed joining our fraternity, is
    here now. Dave takes the skills that he developed over the years in
    software development and design to create a distribution of over 100
    amateur radio softwares deployed on the Raspberry Pi called HamPi. W3DJS demonstrates through his contributions to amateur radio just how valuable
    new blood in ham radio can be. Dave is my QSO Today.Show NotesSponsor TranscriptListen to PodcastOur Listener SponsorsThis list is the total
