    Episode 407 - Arun Kumar - W8ARUArun Kumar, W8ARU, builds most of the gear
    that he uses on the air, based on a skillset that he learned from becoming
    an amateur radio operator in India in the 1960s. This skill set combined
    with advanced degrees in engineering has put Arun on the cutting edge of
    solar and battery technologies used in big equipment as the World is going green. Arun was also Ashhar Farhan, VU2ESEs original mentor, one of his
    many major contributions to our hobby. W8ARU is my QSO Today.Show
