Bob Heil MP3 Files
Bob Heil a radio amateur (K9EID) and founder of Heil Sound visited the National Hamfest 2011 and as part of the pre-publicity for the show, Chris from the Lincoln Short Wave Club interviewed Bob. Below are the mp3 files of the interview.
Following that event, in December Octagon Technology set up a Skype link in the local village hall and Bob gave a presentation about sound from his lab and radio shack in Illinois. I recorded this Skype call and the unedited mp3 file is available below to download.
I have written a post describing how I changed the colour scheme for my WordPress Twenty Twelve theme – see here.
You can download, below, the style sheet used on the Octagon Technology WordPress site, which is very similar to the one in the article, except the main heading font is larger.
