Jerry Powell began his ham radio operation in 1929 and with the exception of the World War II years (when government forbade ham radio operators to take to the air) he was in continuous communication with people all over the world until his death in 1999.
This book tells the story of Powell and the people he met. It is a record of one man's contacts during times of war, depression, peace and floods.
This book brings together over 500 QSLs received by Jerry and provides commentary on each one.
Its is insightful, warm and great at bringing history of the 20th Century to life....
