    Episode 399 - John Raydo - K0IZJohn Raydo, K0IZ, had a great mentor at the beginning of his ham radio story that laid the foundation for Johns
    approach to operating amateur radio and building radio equipment from
    scratch. John shares this story and how he now remotely controls and has
    the noise benefit of his rural Colorado rig when operating from his QTH in Missouri.
