Bob Thomann Turns 80

On September 24th, 2008 Bob Thomann celebrated his 80th birthday. To mark the occasion, The Two Bobs got together for a chat at Bob Thomann’s house near Bern, to review his long career in radio – as a ham and ship’s radio operator, supervisor of ground-to-air communications for the old Swiss PTT, and of course, his many years as the host of DX and SWL programs on Swiss Radio International. They also discussed Bob Thomann’s technical involvement in IRRS, The Italian Radio Relay Service.
