    Bob Leo, W7LR, was inspired into amateur radio in the 1930s, by Hugo Gernsback.

    Gernsback was a Jewish immigrant to New York, married three times, founded NY City station WRNY, was involved in early television, and of course was a pioneer in amateur radio.

    There is a full history on his Wikipedia page.

    We do not hear much about Hugo these days, but I am glad that Bob brought him up on the podcast so that guys like Hugo Gernsback are not forgotten by us.
