Jean P. Shepherd QSL Card

Jean Shepherd tells the trouble he had getting his Heising modulation to work as a young boy. Jean Shepherd, (K2ORS - sk) was a gifted story teller broadcasting on numerous radio stations. He would sometimes weave his hobby of ham radio into his stories. Occasionally, one of his radio related audio stories will be presented in the theater. Happy Listening!
