Chip Angle, N6CA, harnessed an early interest in the bands, VHF to microwave, as a passion that continues to this day. While he is active on every band, Chip pays special attention to low noise receiver performance on his radios that work well above 10 GHz. This attention to detail and training from the aerospace industry allowed Chip to start his own company building low noise preamps, filters, duplexers, and other hardware ultimately used by government including NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. N6CA shares his ham radio story in this QSO Today. Picture is the N6CA 1283 MHz repeater.
