    Episode 378 - Pablo Lewin - WA6RSV
    Pablo Lewin, WA6RSV, has an interest in radio
    astronomy and scans the heavens with his hydrogen line radio telescope
    using an SDR or software defined radio. Pablo had an interesting aviation career where amateur radio weaved in and out of it since the late
    seventies. Now in aviation retirement, he does stand up comedy and
    creates content for the film and television industry. WA6RSV tells his
    amateur radio story in this QSO Today.
