Hello World: A Life in Ham Radio

Hello World: A Life in Ham Radio

by Paul Sahre

Publisher: Princeton Architectural Press

This book, co-authored with Danny Gregory, was initiated by a flea market find. Danny bought an album full of QSL cards (postcards that ham radio operators exchange after they make contact on the air for the first time). The collection belonged to a man name Jerry Powell (W2OJW), who communicated with people all over the world for seventy-five years from his basement in Hackensack, New Jersey. The book documents Powell’s hobby through the cards. Through this information we learned about the people and places he communicated with.
