2012-02-23 01 The Orlando HamCation Tour 2012   36:24
2012-02-27 02 The Orlando Interviews Intro 09:33
2012-02-27 02/01 The Orlando Interviews Rich Moseson W2VU is editor of CQ Magazine. He gets to express himself once a month in the CQ editorial, and now and then at a hamfest forum. Here, I talk to him for almost an hour about how CW is faring now that it's no longer required (and how Ham Radio is doing, too); about the CQ family of magazine's new digital option, and a little about ham radio video.  
2012-02-28 02/02 The Orlando Interviews Lou McFadin W5DID describes the ARISSat-1 satellite, using the operational model at the AMSAT booth at the HamCation. Gary feels inadequate in the presence of such accomplished hams, and he insults the astronauts. That makes Lou uncomfortable, so he goes on to talk about the future of AMSAT and ARISSat. 21:13
2012-02-28 02/03 The Orlando Interviews Yaesu is Yaesu again, having split from parent Motorola. And they're about to go digital VHF/UHF in a big way, but it won't be D-STAR. And we learn about how Yaesu radios can handle the new 60 Meter changes, in this extended interview with their Executive VP for North America, Dennis Motschenbacher K7BV  
2012-02-28 02/04 The Orlando Interviews ICOM's new D-STAR, the ID-31, is a "third generation" D-STAR product designed to solve some of the learning-curve problems hams have had with D-STAR by incorporating a database of D-STAR repeaters, making the radio more ready-to-go out of the box. Ray also responds to Yaesu's claim that D-STAR is "old technology."  
2012-02-29 02/05 The Orlando Interviews Greg Jurrins K5GJ gives Gary some Software-Defined-Radio basics, and talks about the FlexRadio line, now a mature product. They discuss the past and future of Flex, and Gary suggests a new product. 16:14
2012-02-29 02/06 The Orlando Interviews Gary interviewed Eric at the Huntsville Hamfest for Ham Nation, looking at the yet-to-be-released KX3. The radio is being sold now, and first units will be delivered soon. Eric talks about how the K-Line was named in honor of the Collins S-Line. And they discuss how to get Leo Laporte W6TWT off his duff and on the air. 24:23
2012-02-29 02/07 The Orlando Interviews WinRadio has a series of high-end Sofware-Defined receivers, covering HF+ and VHF/UHF, including P-25 digital and trunk scanning. Tariq reviews the line and advantages of SDR in shortwave and scanning. 22:35
2012-03-01 02/08 The Orlando Interviews First, sorry about the multi-colored flashing lights. John thinks that's the way to get your attention. He doesn''t need it. He's got a compelling product - a system to let you use your HF station remotely with only a Touch-Tone phone. No computer! Not even an iPad.  
2012-03-01 02/09 The Orlando Interviews The most unique product we've seen in a while, and we almost missed it, even though they towered over one of the commercial buildings. These are inflatable towers. Fast and easy to set up and take down, and they get your antennas up where they do some good. Same principle as that blow-up Santa in your neighbor's lawn, but a bit more heavy-duty.

2012-02-27 02/11 The Orlando Interviews    
05.01.2014 118 SDR Architecture for VHF/UHF Brian Hoyer K7UDR thinks maybe not so much. Maybe that's because his company, NW Digital Radio, has a product that blends both. The UDRX-440 is a 25-watt 70cm "data radio" that he's designed to be able to run just about any digital protocol available now or later. Now, AX25 (high-speed, no 1200 stuff), D-STAR's DV and DD (at 56 kpbs), the coming modes of CODEC2, and then who knows? His point isn't that SDR can't do it. It can. You just can't afford it. Or as he says, the Swiss Army Knife does a lot, but it's a crummy knife. (They may disagree - I don't know, I don't have one). So you do "purpose built" and SDR when they make technical and economic sense. OK, that's a pretty drastic condensation of Brian's talk, like all these short descriptions are. You may agree or disagree, but if you're into digital at VHF/UHF, you'll want to watch. Brian did a talk at last year's DCC (HamRadioNow Episode 37), and his partner John Hays K7VE was the lead-off speaker at this year's conference (Episode 112). 52:38
05.01.2014 119 Digital Amateur Radio at the Twin Cities Erik Westgard NY9D has been leading the team of hams who provide medical communications - and more - at the Twin Cities Marathon in Minnesota. They've got the voice nets, of course, but the data gets passed around on D-STAR's 1200 MHz DD data system. They've been headed that way for several years. This won't be a very technical talk. Erik will describe what they do, and how they got where they're going. 51:32
08.01.2014 120 Open HARDWARE Open source software? Sure. Open HARDWARE? What's that about? TAPR's John Ackermann N8UR explains how the two concepts go hand in hand. 52:58
08.01.2014 121 OSLR and B.A.T.M.A.N over D-STAR John Ronan EI7IG has been experimenting with throughput using multiple nodes on a 1200 MHz D-STAR DD data system. 34:47
12.01.2014 122 High Performance PSK31 Believe it or not, PSK31 is old. As good as it is, it could be doing better - fewer errors with even weaker signals. Or so says John Gibbs NN7F in his talk at the 2013 ARRL and TAPR DCC. Don't miss the Q&A at the end. Bruce Perens K6BP will suggest that maybe it's time to just move on and give PSK31 the burial it deserves! 1:05:15
13.01.2014 123 Free DV, HT of the Future, Open Source, etc. At Dayton last spring, we talked to Bruce Perens K6BP (HamRadioNow Episode 81) about FreeDV, CODEC2 and "The HT of the Future" -- all part of a fiendish plot to introduce open-source digital voice and more to Amateur Radio on both HF and VHF/UHF. At the 2013 DCC, he continued that theme, going deeper into the technology, though this isn't a highly technical talk. And yes, he takes on Yaesu's new VHF/UHF digital system, as well as D-STAR. Enjoy the ride! See also: Mel Whitten and Dave Whiten's talk on FreeDV at the 2012 DCC (Episode 47), Chris Testa's talk on Handheld SDR (the HT of the Future, Episode 44), and David Rowe VK5DGR's talk on CODEC2 at the 2011 DCC at this long URL: 1:11:37
13.01.2014 124 HackRF - A Low Cost SDR Platform es, this is the HackRF project you've heard so much about. Developer Michael Ossmann visited the DCC (his first Ham Radio talk) to tell us what the Jawbreaker SDR transceiver is and how it came to be. 57:27
13.01.2014 125 GNURadio Module for Hermes-Metis SDR If you understand the title, you're in the right place. If not, BUT you want to know more about the guts of SDR, stick around. I'll do my best to break it down for you in the intro, then Tom McDermott N5EG will walk you through it. "It" is a way to use GNURadio to poke around in the Hermes and Metis HPSDR radios (and yes, I know saying "SDR Radio" is like saying "ATM Machine." Chalk up one more for the 2013 ARRL and 53:10
14.01.2014 126 Kickstarter FAIL, etc. If you need a break from all that DCC technology, this certainly is one. Gary rambles to the camera about the failed KICKSTARTER, what we'll do next, QST and CQ on-line problems, and some CQ video of Cyndi working DX. linkext. Link 1:06:45
20.01.2014 127 "NIPERnet" NextGen Networking Timothy Salo AB0DO has some ideas for better networking for digital Amateur Radio. If he does this well enough, he gets his PhD! 45:51
20.01.2014 128 HamWAN - 6 GHz Network for Amateur If you live in the Seattle area, you get to do something no other hams can do today. You can operate a wide-coverage, high speed (Megabits, not kilobits) digital network called HamWAN. Bart Kus AE7SJ will take you on a technical tour of the system in this talk - the last one before the Sunday "deep dive" at the 2013 DCC. It's another one of those "future of Amateur Radio things you've heard about. You should hear more! 54:21
28.01.2014 129/1 Android Programming Tutorial, Part 1 PART 1 of 3. No Code? Know Code? How about Know Computer Code! In this case, Android programming. Rob Frohne KL7NA gets you started programming a simple app to turn a rotator. This is the Sunday "Deep Dive" from the 2013 ARRL and TAPR DCC. 1:03:09
28.01.2014 129/2 Android Programming Tutorial, Part 2 PART 2 of 3. No Code? Know Code? How about Know Computer Code! In this case, Android programming. Rob Frohne KL7NA gets you started programming a simple app to turn a rotator. This is the Sunday "Deep Dive" from the 2013 ARRL and TAPR DCC. 1:01:14
28.01.2014 129/3 Android Programming Tutorial, Part 3 PART 3 of 3. No Code? Know Code? How about Know Computer Code! In this case, Android programming. Rob Frohne KL7NA gets you started programming a simple app to turn a rotator. This is the Sunday "Deep Dive" from the 2013 ARRL and TAPR DCC. 1:09:51
29.01.2014 130 Adventures of a Time Nut (Banquet Talk) Need to prove the Theory of Relativity over a holiday weekend? How about just choosing the right wristwatch from the display at Target? No problem, at least if you're Tom van Baak (rhymes with clock), Time Nut. He shows you how to do it in this very entertaining talk from the 2013 ARRL and TAPR DCC. This is the Saturday night banquet talk, and while Tom's subject is pretty technical, he keeps it understandable (plus or minus a few nanoseconds) to a general audience. linkext. Link 1:01:08
01.02.2014 131 A 60-Meter BAND? Maybe ? Today hams in the USA and most of the world have a few discrete 60-Meter channels. A more traditional band is a small part of the proposal that the FCC is preparing as the US's submission to WRC-15, the World Radio Conference coming in November, 2015. That set of "draft recommendations" is open for public comment until February 18. In this episode, ARRL's CTO Brennan Price N4QX explains where we are in this process (early), and what happens next (a lot, fast). The FCC's proposal, covering the "private sector" of communications (Radio and TV, your cell phone, ham radio, business and public-safety two-way radio, etc.), gets mashed up with what the NTIA wants for the government. That result gets mixed with other country's ideas in the Americas, and then it all goes off to Geneva to get hammered out at the WRC. The idea of a 60-Meter band isn't just ours. It was actually proposed by Cuba, which just authorized their hams a very small band. The FCC is recommending a bigger band (the negotiations ended up with 175 kHz worth, but don't expect that to survive to the end). We also talk a little about the ARRL's Symbol Rate request for rule making that just closed. That's gonna have to be a whole show sometime soon. And Gary asks Brennan about the 472 kHz ham band (the 630 Meter Band) that the ITU agreed on at the 2012 WRC (where is it?). If you're a microwaver, 60 meters is an afterthought... sorry. The Ham Radio GHz bands are also addressed in the WRC items, but we didn't get to that in this talk. (Note that this is a replacement YouTube upload. The first version never rendered high-rez. If you linked or embedded really fast, that version was deleted, so grab this one) 1:13:38
10.02.2014 132/1 My Stupid Plan for 60 Meters, Part One In Episode 131, Brennan Price led us through the steps that may end in the WRC-15 creating a ham band at 5 MHz (60 Meters). Yay. Yes, we in the US and many other countries have a little spectrum at 60 - mostly set up as individual "channels" rather than the traditional ham band we're used to. But the ITU Radio Regulations have no ham band there. There's a plan afoot for the WRC to approve a real band.So Gary got to thinking, there's something nice about those 60 meter "channels" that he likes: no interference from stations snuggling in a little too close for comfort like seems to always happen on the other bands where hams have the freedom to plunk down a signal anywhere in the band they want to. Why not expand that concept to the whole new band? Well, nobody else is going to like it. But what the heck. If he's going to impose his will on everyone, he'll have to get started. We've got until February 18 (2014) to file comments with the FCC. Gary wrote up his comments, and then decided to do a show about it. So he hooked up with Jeff AC4ZO on Skype (Jeff had a cold), and they talked about it for almost an hour, until Jeff had to go. Then Gary prattled on for yet another hour. 48:54
10.02.2014 132/2 My Stupid Plan for 60 Meters, Part Two This half of the episode has the actual plan. And a sad story about a cat. 1:03:10
22.02.2014 133 HamRadioNow at the Movies Jeff & Gary review videos from the ARRL and the new TX Factor program. 1:00:51
25.02.2014 134 ARDF (Fox Hunting) ARDF - Amateur Radio Direction Finding - is the European style on-foot version of Fox Hunting. This program, from the ARVN vault, is the 2006 USA ARDF Championship that qualified hams for the world ARDF event that year. Don't worry about "2006," this isn't all about results. It's about the people, the techniques and the equipment involved in this fascinating aspect of ham radio.41 41:29
2014-03-07 135 The WW8N Tower Case Gary Wadtke WW8N had to sue his Ohio village to put up a 60 foot tower. He won, but the village appealed, and the appeal is pending. His attorney, well-known Ham Radio antenna law expert Fred Hopengarten K1VR, takes us through the case and dispenses some free advice. More advice? Buy his book, "Antenna Zoning for the Radio Amateur." MORE advice? His retainer starts at $1500. I'd start with the video.... 1:07:16
2014-03-12 136 CQ Magazine Update ('What the heck?') CQ Magazine has been AWOL from mailboxes since the December issue. Yes, there's been trouble in Hicksville, and CQ editor Rich Moseson W2VU joins Gary in this episode to talk about what and why, and what the future holds for CQ. Oh, and the January issue is in the mail! 1:02:43
2014-03-13 137/1 Part 1 - Wake Atoll 2013 DXpedition Lou Dietrich N2TU's "slide show" of last November's DXpedition to Wake Island (Wake Atoll), presented at the 2014 Charlotte Hamfest. So no, this isn't "the video" of the DXpedition (there isn't one, and Lou didn't mention making one, so this may be it). 1:02:30
2014-03-15 137/2 Part 2: Amsterdam Is. FT5ZM DXpedition Bob Allphin is another famous DXer, and he just got back from a nearly half-million dollar "vacation" to the south Indian Ocean. Bob will be making a video, but he OK'd us making a program from his hamfest talk at the Charlotte hamfest. 1;:09:54
2014-03-21 138 MotoTRBOStar on HamRadioNow A new handheld radio will feature TWO digital modes: MOTOTRBO (DMR) and D-STAR. And it's going to be pretty darn cheap. 46:11
2014-03-23 139 Symbol Rate (or Digital Solves All Your Problems) Gary talks with Open Source evangelist Bruce Perens K6BP about the ARRL's Symbol Rate petition and request for member comment on digital band plans, and a host of other digital concerns including FreeDV and the HT of the Future (with reverb). We know that HF digital mode plans are controversial. We're planning more programs to look at other points of view. Your comments (and guest suggestions) are welcome below. Play nice.. 1:17:24
2014-04-06 140 Please Stand By Filler. Placeholder. Not a real episode. Oh, sure, Gary talks for over an hour. But does he say anything? Watch this only of you need to be distracted, maybe mildly entertained, or just have company for an hour. We're busy doing something else. 1:13:10
2014-04-09 141 The Shirt Off My Back I would NOT give you the shirt off my back, but you can BUY the shirt off my guest's web site. Tom Chapman KC9FOZ runs, and after bugging me for too long, I agreed to let him produce a line of HamRadioNow t-shirts (sweatshirts, hoodies, might be available if he sees some interest). So this program is basically a half-hour infomercial. I'm betting you're enjoy it! 39:53
2014-04-17 142 This is only a test Filler material because I've been too busy to make an episode, and you deserve SOMETHING 16:46
2014-05-07 143 Meet Joe Ham(m) Ham Nation has Joe Walsh, but WE have JOE HAM(m). Practically the Captain America of Hams! 1:06:12
2014-05-15 144/4 ARISS to the MAX - A 1992 SAREX Contact Part Four of Four (that means it's the last one). A SAREX contact from more than 20 years ago... one that FAILED! (Then it succeeded). 28:33
2014-05-15 144/3 ARISS to the MAX - PIOs and the Media Part Three of Four. The PIOs discuss how they involved the media. 57:42
2014-05-15 144/2 ARISS to the MAX - the Students, the Teacher and the Ham Part Two of Four. We talk to the students, the teacher, and the Ham. 54:50
2014-05-15 144/1 ARISS to the MAX - the CONTACT! Part One of Four - way more than the usual ARISS contact video. First, it's got HamRadioNow's legendary 3-camera video and high-quality audio. 28:52
2014-05-15 144/2 ARISS to the MAX - the Students, the Teacher and the Ham Part Two of Four. We talk to the students, the teacher, and the Ham. 54:50

2014-05-15 144/4 ARISS to the MAX - A 1992 SAREX Contact Part Four of Four (that means it's the last one). A SAREX contact from more than 20 years ago... one that FAILED! (Then it succeeded). 28:33
2014-05-25 145 CQ Made It to Dayton! Here comes our Hamvention footage. Here Gary talks to Rich W2VU and Richard KI6SN, editors of CQ and CQ Plus, which (against all odds, or at least the odds offered by some of the hams who made comments on-line), is still in business and made it to Dayton. And a lot of banter between Gary and Cliff W4FT 42:38
2014-05-26 146 FlexRadio 6300 Intro at Dayton At $2500, FlexRadio enters a new market segment for their full-featured, direct-sampling software defined radio. We talk to their Sales guy,Greg Jurrens K5GJ at Dayton. Then Cliff and Gary kick it around a little. 33:44
2014-05-29 147 Cute toys from Elecraft & TEN-TEC at Dayton A little panadapter for the KX3 from Elecraft, and a small, open-source "RF Platform" from TEN-TEC that you DIY software for. 33:21
2014-05-30 148 Great South Bay ARC We were invited to do one of those "Guest Speaker via Skype" deals at the Great South Bay Amateur Radio Club meeting. They're a big, active club in central Long Island, New York. So Jeff and Gary fired up the skype... and pushed the RECord button to make it an episode of HamRadioNow. And here it is! 37:44
2014-06-03 149 What's a Whitebox? It's the opposite of Black Box - open source hardware and software. It just may be the "Future of Amateur Radio." Chris Testa KB2BMH and Bruce Perens K6BP talk to Gary at the TAPR booth at the 2014 Hamvention about the product they're working on - an open-source software defined radio for VHF/UHF 51:18
2014-06-06 150 Hijinks and Straight Keys Hijinks is fun. Keys are serious. Don't get them confused 35:47
2014-06-12 151 Collins Collectors & AMSAT Fox 1 from Dayton The Collins Collector's Assn is into way more than just diddling with old radios. And AMSAT has more to show you on the Fox-1 Satellite. 38:09
2014-06-14 152 Friday Night BS #1 Bull Session. Gary & Newsline's Bill Pasternack ramble on about (eventually) the new FCC Report and Order on remote VE testing, expired license recovery and DMR; ARRL's new nomenclature emphasizing Public Service over Emergency; the origin of the term SAREX and other stuff. Fans of "efficient" 1:25:51
2014-06-16 153 Hardened Power, TiltPlate from Dayton, and Inside the Show First, a hat-tip and goodbye to KB4HQA (SK), one of my mentors in podcasting. Then back to Dayton to check out Hardened Power Systems UPS-ish devices, the TiltPlate system for keeping off ladders when working on the antennas on your tilt-over tower, and some "inside" HamRadioNow stuff (at the end). 46:45
2014-06-22 154 KICKSTARTER Launch for the 2014 DCC Video Time to launch the KICKSTARTER to fund getting to Austin and shoot the 2014 ARRL and TAPR Digital Communications Conference. Embedded in this episode is the video we just uploaded to the KICKSTARTER folks. Now we wait for the project to be accepted (fairly likely, since we've done this 23:55
2014-06-23 155 Tuner on Steroids; Grounding on Auto Don Kessler KI6SZ shows us his... maybe overkill high-power, automatic, remote operated antenna tuner, coming later this year. Then John Troy KI4YUM introduces a new (coming soon) product from RemoteShack - an automatic device for disconnecting and grounding your antenna when it's not in use. 25:37
014-06-26 156 Propagation... for Field Day... If You Hurry OK, not just Field Day! Gary talks with Tomas Hood NW7US, propagation columnist for CQ and Spectrum Monitor, and general Space Weather enthusiast. Field Day? It's gonna be OK, not great, with a reliability factor not any better than that of your TV weatherman forecast three days out. The real meat in the show is how you get to that prediction, and what propagation forecasting can do in general. 1:13:47
2014-07-18 157 I'm Back (and oh, yeah, the DCC Video KICKSTARTER is LIVE!) Gary explains where he's been (a 3-week pod-fade), talks about the DCC video KICKSTARTER that's doing well despite being "untended" since it's launch, and the Amateur Radio Parity Act. 38:03
2014-07-21 158 NO on 4969 (YES on SDR) HR 4969, the Amateur Radio Parity Act, is a bill before the House of Representatives that would extend PRB-1 protection to private contracts like your Homeowner's Association rules, deed restrictions, "CC&R's," and stuff like that. Every ham supports that, right? 1:1254
2014-07-29 159 CSI-Dayton (with D-STAR and the Dongles) Three digital voice interviews from the Hamvention®. We get an update from Connect System's (that's the CSI) Jerry Wanger and the D-STAR HT he's developing. Then the Grand Old Man of D-STAR in the US - Jim McClellan N5MIJ says there's still more coming, and Robin Cutshaw AA4RC has a Raspberry Pi 45:31
2014-08-02 160 Friday Night BS #2 (on Wednesday) Two Twenty Two.... that's two hours and twenty-two minutes of three experienced, knowledgeable hams rambling on about current events. Once again it's Newsline's Bill Pasternack WA6ITF, this time joined by Ward Silver N0AX, along with Host Gary Pearce KN4AQ.. 2:21:58
2014-08-19 161 Yaesu's System (Con)Fusion Gary's QST review of the Yaesu FTM-400 and FT1DR digital mobile and HT was long. This "addendum" video is even longer. You get your money's worth. We play with the radios thru a DR-1 repeater, and then compare HTs running Yaesu's C4FM, D-STAR, P-25 and DMR (MotoTRBO). 1:37:20
2014-08-28 162 Austin or Bust Just a quick 'Hi' to you guys because I've been too busy to produce a real episode, and I'm about to hit the road to the DCC in Austin. 10:11
2014-09-03 163 The Road to Austin Runs Thru Shelby A stop at the Shelby NC Hamfest starts our trip to Austin. See Gary's APRS track on linkext. Link. 44:08
2014-09-08 164/2 FlexRadio 'Waveform' API - F Think of the Waveform API as a way do design more signals, modes, and other RF into Flex's SmartSDR. FreeDV with CODEC2 is just the beginning - the demonstration app that puts a new mode button on the 28:17
2014-09-08 164/1 FlexRadio at the DCC - OPEN Flex VP of Engineering Stephen Hicks N5AC AC announces that the API for SmartSDR software is now out of beta and open to all! 48:32
2014-09-19 165/2 On the Road (Home) Part ONE (Carolina or Bust) Gary rambles on as he gets on the road home from the DCC in Austin. Radio programming, D-STAR, APRS, Tone (CTCSS), Hams in Beaumont TX, 10 Meters, Road Trips, and un poco de español are most of the topics. 51:39
2014-09-22 165/1 On the Road (Home) Part TWO (Carolina or Bust) Day two (and that's it... sorry!) has a scan of some of the HF bands, a SouthCars check-in, a surprise County Hunters Net check-in, and on-air chats with friends Cliff W4FT and Jerry KE4TTS as I cross Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama on the southern route. I didn't shoot any on-the-road video the next day, but I did end up at the North Carolina Mountain State Fair, where a group of local clubs set up an 33:09
2014-10-09 166 TAPR and the Beach on HamRadioNow The ARRL and TAPR 2014 DCC Friday "Intro" session, wrapped in a video about setting up a temporary station at the Beach. Make that two stations. And Jeff fixes a radio. 43:10
2014-10-09 167 K6BP 'AMBE Exposed' from the 2014 DCC - HamRadioNow The leadoff talk from the 2014 DCC - Bruce Perens K6BP admits he was wrong about the AMBE vocoder used in D-STAR and most other VHF/UHF digital voice equipment. It isn't a black box. The specs are public! But they're so encumbered by patents that you can't use them... unless...except.... And, what else 57:20
2014-10-10 168 DATV Express SDR Exciter for Digital ATV at the DCC on HamRadioNow Digital ATV enthusiast Ken Konechy W6HHC updates the DATV Express, an SDR (or should it be 'SDTV') exciter that generates digital Amateur Television in a variety of modes and bandwidths. From the ARRL and TAPR DCC in Austin TX. 46:08
2014-10-21 169 DVB-T Digital Video, from the DCC on From the 2014 DCC - Mel Whitten K0PFX gives some background and shows how easy it is to get on the air with Digital Amateur Television using the European broadcast standard DVB-T. 52:10
2014-10-26 170 Off the Shelf SDR, from the 2014 DCC on HamRadioNow Scotty Cowling WA2DFI defies nature and installs a trio of SDR radios on a Windows computer "live" in one 45-minute presentation.

2015-03-21 195 DV System Comparison on HamRadioNow The Charlotte NC Digital Radio Group is kinda nuts for the DV systems. They don't pick favorites – they put them all up.

He helped demonstrate the need for clear rules and definitions, sometimes by breaking them. He spent time in prison (serious, disputed, but 33:13

2015-07-30 213 Parity in the Senate on HamRadioNow You might recall the ARRL asking you to send a letter to your Congressman or woman asking them to support the Amateur Radio Parity Act.

2015-09-08 217 HOAs Oppose Parity - ARRL Fights Back HOA's are waking up to the Amateur Radio Parity Act, encouraging their members/residents to fight it by, let's say 'stretching the truth' a bit about what the act would mean for them and us. 1:2248

2016-04-03 250 NTS... D (as in Digital) Is NTS, the National Traffic System, stuck hopelessly in the past, or is it leading the charge into the future? In this conversation with North Carolina Section Traffic Manager Dave Roy W4DNA, we find the answer is somewhere in the middle. Most traffic is still passed (laboriously) by voice or CW, but some... mostly in the middle of the system where messages transit from one region to another... flows quickly by HF digital 43:17
2016-04-24 251 85 Watts and a Wire on HamRadioNow Gary considers usurping the 100 Watts and a Wire show name because nobody on the show runs 100 watts and a wire anymore. But he tempers his hostile takeover because co-host Katie Allen WY7YL has taken a new job, and it look like she won't be able to participate in the show (but Katie, you didn't even say 1:12:45
2016-05-18 252 European Vacation THE MOVIE Part ONE on HamRadioNow CAUTION: No Ham Radio in this Episode! (and NOTE: This IS the video with 'better compression' - that'll only mean something to the Day 1 viewers). 53:20
2016-05-26 253 DAYTONa 500 (On the Road) on HamRadioNow On the Road to the 2016 Dayton Hamvention®! 1:14:38
2016-05-29 254 TAPR Forum at the 2016 Hamvention® on HamRadioNow Here's the complete TAPR Forum from the 2016 Hamvention. And here's a timing guide to each of the six presenters: 1:57:37
2016-05-30 255 APRS Forum at the 2016 Hamvention® on HamRadioNow Bob Bruninga WB4APR invented APRS. He's had plenty of help, but it's still his show. While most of us use it to show where we are on a map, there are so many more aspects to it that Bob can't fit them all into a single forum. So this is kind of a 'greatest hits,' including my personal favorite: APRS isn't a vehicle tracking system! 1:03:14
2016-06-03 256 SDR Forum at the 2016 Hamvention® on HamRadionow Scotty Cowling WA2DFI from HPSDR and TAPR; Jared Boone AF7SO from ShareBrained Technology and Great Scott Gadgets (HackRF); and Steve Hicks N5AC from FlexRadio Systems team up to make this engaging presentation from their points on the SDR 'spectrum.' As you'll see, the room was SRO (crowded 1:03:38
2016-06-22 257 2016 D-STAR Forum at Dayton on HamRadioNow D-STAR is now the Grand Old Man of Digital Voice in amateur radio, but it still fills the room with interested hams at the Dayton Hamvention®. John Davis WB4QDX moderates this year's forum. 1:46:26
2016-07-07 258 5 Watt Field Day (or... Field of Beams) on HamRadioNow The Field of Beams was in Orange County, North Carolina for a couple days toward the end of June - yes, Field Day - set up by hams from the Durham FM Association and the Orange County Radio Amateurs. You'll find their call sign, W4EZ in the #3 spot in the Top Ten box in 2015, and a few other top ten's in previous years. An impressive showing, especially considering their 9A 5 Watt battery class. 1:38:19
2016-07-14 259 PokéHAM GOta (or Parity, Amended) on Ham Radio Now PokéHAM GOta? A Ham Radio version of the little game that's sweeping the country? Sorry, no. That's just click bait to get you to check out this show about something far more important to Ham Radio, but maybe a little dry. We don't want to give it away, but nobody reads these descriptions 46:23
2016-07-21 260 DCC KICKSTARTER Promo Our pitch for funding to produce video of the 2016 ARRL & TAPR Digital Communications Conference  
secure linkext. Link. 7:09      
2016-07-22 261 Stranger Hams on Ham Radio Now Netflix just released a new, limited series titled 'Stranger Things' that has a little Ham Radio in it, and a little more CB. It's an 8-part science-fiction show featuring three middle-school geeky boys, a super-powered girl, and the usual collection of clueless and sometimes evil adults. 43:20
2016-07-26 262 Modes Now and for the Future (from Dayton on HamRadioNow) Bruce Perens K6BP and Chris Testa KD2BMH update their work on a multi-digital mode radio... what went wrong, and what happens next. 1:46:26
2016-07-29 263 Learn More about DV4 on Ham Radio Now Wireless Holding's DV4mobile promises to be a groundbreaking advance in Amateur Radio VHF/UHF digital voice. A single radio that will do all the common DV modes (D-STAR, DMR, P25, C4FM (Fusion) on 144, 222 and 440 MHz. But that's just the start. Company founder Uri Altvater AG0X/DH6SAB talks about this radio in depth, and gets to details that you haven't seen in any other articles or interviews 1:33:28
2016-08-15 264 Change is Hard (especially on HamRadioNow) You think we're talking about the Hamvention® move, right? Nope. We recorded this program the day before the move was announced, but a technical glitch kept us 1:56:45
2016-08-18 265 Holding Pattern A little filler between episodes. But heck, at 20 minutes, it's longer than some other podcast's regular shows, so I changed my mind and gave it a number. Also, a look at Ham Radio in the TV show "Limitless." Besides, gotta keep ahead of Ham Nation. 20:03
2016-08-22 266 KICKSTARTER Countdown The HamRadioNow KICKSTARTER for making video of the ARRL/TAPR DCC successfully ended Sunday night (August 21). Gary had just gotten the studio connected to Facebook LIVE, and used the countdown to the KICKSTARTER closing as an excuse for a live broadcast 19:30
2016-08-30 267 DMR Unboxed Stolen video from Facebook Live - unboxing a TYT MD-380 DMR HT, and a lot more rambling (because we don't do unboxings). I also talk about the BTech (BaoFeng) UV 5x3 tri-band HT, also in the review process 54:31
