    Episode 388 - Corey Ruth - KD3CRCorey Ruth, KD3CR, was a speaker in last Augusts QSO Today Virtual Ham Expo, with a presentation titled, HF in an
    HOA: The BBTD Attic Antenna. His presentation captured my attention
    because Corey is a relatively new ham, living in an HOA, an immigrant to
    the United States, and using an antenna that for all intents and purposes,
    was too good to be true. You will hear in this interview that my
    conversion from being a skeptic to a believer is complete. I know that you will find this interview with KD3CR very interesting, allowing you to draw
    your own conclusions.Show NotesSponsor TranscriptionListen to PodcastOur Listener SponsorsThis list is the total amounts contributed as sponsorships and/or donations since Episode 1 in July 2014.
