Episode 420 – Tim Berry – WB4GBI
On the final Sunday of the Dayton Hamvention, I was wandering around the Xenia fairground and needed to rest my feet. My guest this week was sitting at the table and was kind enough to let me join him. We struck up a conversation that ultimately led to this interview. Tim Berry WB4GBI has been a ham almost 50 years, in Knoxville, Tennessee, and has more than a passing interest in repeaters, emergency communications, and has been a broadcast engineer for most of his life. Tim shares his ham radio story in this QSO Today.
