Episode 450 – Baris Dinc – OH2UDS


Baris Dinc, OH2UDS, has a  passion for amateur radio that has shaped his life and career in remarkable ways. Growing up in Turkey with a father who loved tinkering with electronics, Baris was exposed to the world of radio communication early on through articles in the Turkish Amateur Radio Society Magazine, which further ignited his love for the craft. Baris was the only child under 18 to hold a Turkish amateur license with the call sign TA7W. This early achievement set the stage for an illustrious career, which included earning a BSEE from Ankara University and spearheading the ambitious communications projects, QO-100 earth stations and the  Mars on Earth project to interest kids in radio and satellites.  OH2UDS is my QSO Today.

Excited most by: always something new to try, like a portable QO-100 station. 

Advice to new or returning hams: “ham radio is not an “old hobby””, there are opportunities to learn technology in ham radio.
