We were fortunate to have Bob Heil, K9EID join us via Zoom at our October club meeting. Bob spoke about how his experience in amateur radio tuned into a career creating sound systems for musicians such as The Grateful Dead, The Who, and Peter Frampton, and the creation of his company, Heil Sound. Special thanks to Justin, K4LEN for making the arrangements for Bob to join us. We look forward to having Bob join us again to go into greater detail discussing antennas and other topics.
