    Episode 406 - Jerry Arnold - K9AFJerry Arnold, K9AF, is a long time
    commercial broadcaster and amateur radio operator, originally from Southern California, and now living in Terre Haute, Indiana. While Jerry likes to operate CW, he also has a restored AM Broadcast transmitter on 160 meters
    to transmit that warm AM sound we like to hear. K9AF and I discuss a whole range of ham radio topics in this QSO Today.Show NotesSponsor TranscriptionListen to PodcastOur Listener SponsorsThis list is the total amounts contributed as sponsorships and/or donations since Episode 1 in

    Greatest challenge facing amateur radio now: More people getting licenses,
    but cost keeps them from getting on the air. We have dumbed down the
    license to get numbers.

    Excited most by: Ham radio is still here. Can operate any evening and talk
    to someone.

    Advice to new or returning hams: Do not stagnate at the Technician level, upgrade!
