Bob LaRose received a Philmore cat whisker crystal radio set for Christmas at the age of 10 and that was it. He fell in love with radio.
He pursued that passion and received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology. However, he soon found more of an interest in the marketing and sales of radio communications systems, especially in developing countries.
His involvement in marketing and sales led him to executive management sales positions in domestic and international companies, like Harris Corporation, STORNO (Denmark), Datron World Communications, and Raytheon/JPS Communications.
