Phil Sittner, KD6RM,, interviewed on QSO Today

Member Phil Sittner, KD6RM's "Constructing an Accurate QRP Digital Wattmeter" published in October QST!

Congratulations to Phil and the River City ARCS DIY Radio Builders' Group on this latest club build project described in the October issue of the QST journal. Phil's ham radio story goes back over 50 years, from childhood. Still living in Northern California, Phil builds his own radios and test equipment, operates CW on 80 and 40 meters, using his fence mounted 80 meter end-fed Zepp and a pair of phased 40 meter verticals in an HOA neighborhood where antennas are forbidden. We harness Phil’s extensive technical expertise and hear his ham radio story in this QSO Today.

Listen to Phil's QSO Today podcast interview on https://www.qsotoday.com/podcasts/kd6rm

Our sincere thanks to River City ARCS member Al, K6AAI, and RadioQSL.com for his generous donation of custom QSL cards for N6NA!
