Frank Letton talks ham radio as competitive sport

On Thursday, April 3 at 5 p.m. on KMUD, The SHARC Report will feature an interview with Southern Humboldt resident Frank Letton recorded on location at his high-performance ham radio station perched on a mountaintop near his home in Whale Gulch.

Letton competes against hams all over the world using Morse code and only five watts of transmitter power. Using his well-honed operating skills, top-notch radios and finely tuned, hand-made, high-gain antennas, Letton consistently scores among the very best in the nation in ham radio contests.

Tune in to learn more about ham radio as a competitive sport this Thursday at 5 p.m., and listen to The SHARC Report, a program presented by the Southern Humboldt Amateur Radio Club, on the first Thursday of every month at 5 p.m. on KMUD.
