Didden Jan

Didden Jan Jan Didden spent most of his career working for the Netherlands Air Force and NATO specializing in Air Defense and International Cooperative Logistics. As an audio hobbyist he has many projects, publications and interviews and one patent to his name. After retirement he started to complete all those half-finished audio projects accumulated in previous decades (www.linearaudio.nl). Disappointed by the steady decline in quality technical audio periodicals, he started Linear Audio in 2010 to help spread technical audio information and knowledge in printed format.
