Episode 370 – Robert Nash – G4GEE

Dr. Robert Nash, G4GEE, discovered early on that amateur radio is a social hobby that makes him a citizen of the World with friendships on every continent.  Working DX and dedicating time to his local club, the Coventry Amateur Radio Society, is his formula for ham radio success.  G4GEE is my QSO Today.

Loneliness in Older People

Greatest challenge facing amateur radio now:
lack of new, younger hams. 

Excited most by: digital modes, satellites, and meeting new people. 

Advice to new or returning hams: get on the air and talk to people.
