    Episode 389 - Arnie Shatz - N6HC
    Arnie Shatz, N6HC, began his amateur radio journey over 64 years ago, loves

    the ill fated 3Y0Z to Bouvet Island a few years ago. N6HC believes that amateur radio is the best hobby for developing critical thinking and
    problem solving skills, and he is my QSO Today.
