Ham Radio Now

Ham Radio Now podcasts are the audio from our television programs (on YouTube.com/HamRadioNow). The shows are all about the hobby/service of Amateur Radio, but there are several types of shows all mixed up among the episodes. Some are talk shows, some are seminars and forums, and there's a mini-documentary now and then. The talk shows make the best audio listening, but you'll get something from almost all of them. We'll rate the "radio" quality in the show descriptions.
  1. Norm Goodkin K6YXH visits with David W0DHG and talks about getting up and running to do remote testing for Amateur Radio Licenses. Norm mentioned that there were a lot of other players involved, but this is a good review of what they went through to get up and running. We discuss security concerns and how it works

  2. It's Friday night... I made it through the week. What are you doing right now with Ham Radio?  I heard from several of you: Helping out in County Call Centers, School Free Lunch distribution and Virus Testing. WOW!

  3. What does "be prepared" mean to Ham Radio? Got stuff, I talk about some of my bags that are ready to go... And JOTA/JOTI

  4. David W0DHG is hunkered down in Los Angeles. Just a quick episode, but hoping to chronicle this adventure over the next few day, weeks, and perhaps months. Please email me w0dhg@arrl.net if you have suggestions for shows or want to join me via the internet.
