February 1 Zoom Meeting

Dr. Hiroki Kato, AH6CY
"The Paraset and other Spy Radios of WWII and the Cold War"

The Paraset and Model 96 "Ku"

Our February 1 Meeting Speaker: Dr. Hiroki Kato, born in Hiroshima, Japan, one month after the attack on Pearl Harbor, lived 20 miles from ground zero and earned his first amateur radio license JA4AAO as a high school student. He later moved to the US to pursue graduate studies and teach political science and linguistics at several universities. After working for several early Silicon Valley startups, Hiroki retired in 2000 and pursued his passion for finding and restoring vintage wartime military and spy radios. He has spoken at ARRL Pacificon Conventions and authored various articles including "Two Clandestine Radios of WWII," "The Radios that Started and Ended World War II in the Pacific," and his book "The Paraset Radio: The Story of a WWII Spy Radio and How to Build a Working Replica." Hiroki currently enjoys restoring vintage "boat anchor" radios and operating portable and remote with his amateur radio callsign AH6CY.

Phil Sittner, KD6RM,, interviewed on QSO Today

Phil Sittner, KD6RM, on QSO Today Podcast

Phil has a ham radio story that 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.
