A Fascinating Interview with Bob Heil


Bob-HeilEric over at QSO Today has posted an interview with Bob Heil K9EID, the genius behind Heil Sound microphones for both amateur and professional audio use. The interview is really Bob just talking about how he got into amateur radio, how his amateur radio background influenced his incredible career(s), and how amateur radio really needs BUILDERS and ELMERS!

I found the whole thing fascinating as well as motivating. I could almost say it was life-changing, but maybe that is just me. Anyway, I hope you give a listen.

Here is the info from the QSO Today site:

Bob Heil, K9EID, is no stranger to ham radio, as a pioneer in audio systems, not only for the rock and roll stars in the 60’s and 70’s, but for ham radio as well. As the founder of Heil Sound, Bob’s injection of audio experience and know how has raised the bar of what is acceptable for good sounding voice communications on amateur radio. Bob shares his ham radio story with Eric, 4Z1UG, on this episode of QSO Today.
