From our February 14, 2011 Regular meeting The February SCCARA meeting featured Rich Harrington, WA6GJF/KN6FW, speaking on T Hunting.

As his first call suggests Rich has been at this since 1962. Rich got part of his T-Hunting skills in the US Navy where it is a serious business.

Rich is now retired from Pacific Bell so he can devote his time to designing, building, and using DF equipment.
