Ham Radio: Workbench 20 Listener Projects part 2

On episode 20 of The Workbench podcast, George is back and now Jeremy joins him from the road as he heads to the Midwest RepRap Festival – 3D printing gathering in Goshen Indiana.

We continue our interviews with three listeners who are building interesting ham radio and electronics projects.  Rex KE6MT builds a digital doorbell, Jeff KK9JEF builds a 40m CW transceiver and Don KG5IWL builds a Bit-X transceiver and a custom case.
