    Episode 386 - Dave Jensen - W7DGJDave Jensen, W7DGJ, found his way into
    amateur radio from volunteering to help disabled Korean War veterans, who
    were active amateurs, in a Cleveland, Ohio, Veterans Hospital. From that interaction grew a love of radio and communications that has lasted a
    lifetime. Dave likes to work CW on 17 meters and build his own equipment. W7DGJ is my QSO Today.Show NotesSponsor TranscriptListen to PodcastOUR
