    Episode 370 - Robert Nash - G4GEE
    Dr. Robert Nash, G4GEE, discovered early on that
    amateur radio is a social hobby that makes him a citizen of the World with friendships on every continent. Working DX and dedicating time to his
    local club, the Coventry Amateur Radio Society, is his formula for ham
    radio success. G4GEE is my QSO Today.

    Loneliness in Older People

    Greatest challenge facing amateur radio now: lack of new, younger hams.

    Excited most by: digital modes, satellites, and meeting new people.

    Advice to new or returning hams: get on the air and talk to people.
