    Episode 397 - Ed Wilson - N2XDDEd Wilson, N2XDD, discovered radio as a kid
    with a gifted four channel public safety scanner. This led to an interest
    in radio, a career in law enforcement, and exposure to amateur radio. Now
    an active ham, Ed has become a booster of the M17 project, a native ham
    radio digital mode for VHF and above. NX2DD is my QSO Today.Show
