  1. Guys, Been listening for about 3 mos now and really enjoy the shows. I’ve learned a lot especially on the WB. Hoping to get an antenna analyzer board soon. Need to clean off my workbench a bit. Kudos on your choice of guests. The discussions balance the technical with the practical. Although the podcasts can be long the time seems to fly. And it really makes the 2hr commute to Boston, MA each day seem lass onerous. Also thanks for the recommendations. HAKKO CHECK! Headphone splitter CHECK!
    And Jeremy thanks for getting me interested in 3DP.
    Keep up the great work. 7 3 Ron K1KJR.
