Cub Scout's Radio Interest Leads to Company, Success:

E-mail Print PDF
He was an 8-year-old Cub Scout, living in the Mississippi Delta town of Hollandale, and took part in a group activity where he learned how to build a radio. Little did Jue know this one activity would change his life. Jue was enamored with the way the device functioned and went on to become a ham radio operator in high school, talking with other “hams” around the world and perfecting his knowledge of Morse code. He went off to college and earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering, from Mississippi State University and Georgia Tech, respectively, and eventually began his own ham radio manufacturing operation. These days, Jue says his business is the largest ham radio manufacturing operation in the U.S., and it’s located right here in Starkville. Yet, he traces all of his success back to that one day as a member of the Cub Scouts. “I knew what I wanted to do since that day,” Jue said. “That’s what got it all started. I’ve been interested in this ever since.”

I need something to get my teeth into

E-mail Print PDF
So PC gaming isn’t dead. To be honest I’ve known that for a while. Even though previous reports had it supposedly well behind console gaming (mainly because they forgot a little genre called MMO, duh), those of us who are lucky enough to have a half decent PC with a broadband connection are usually aware there are things like Steam, and free online games like Desktop Tower Defence that more often than not, occupy way too much of our time to even think about giving any of the current generation of consoles a second glance.
