HamRadioNow is brought to you by you. The show is viewer supported, or as one of our critics put it, we're asking you to pay for Gary's vacations. And the cameras, mics, editing system, and maybe most important, our time. The show is nearly full-time work for Gary, and once in a while he even pays someone to help out. We don't take advertising. We ask you to send a little money when you can, and many of you do... even though you could watch for free. So thanks!
Patreon is an independent service designed to let you easily fund people who create stuff you like: music, art, podcasts... With Patreon, you make a monthly contribution of any amount you choose. It's easy to sign up, easy to change, and easy to cancel. Patreon will charge your contribution to your credit card around the 1st of each month.
Stop by the HamRadioNow Patreon page. You can see how many contributors we have, and how much we're raking in each month (how's that vacation plan looking, Gary?). How much should you contribute? Our mantra is 'Whatever it's worth to you,' but we'll get specific to get you started: A buck a month is awesome! We just did the math on a recent month and the average was $6. That's very generous, and we're grateful that some of you like us enough to do that. But if you're just warming up to the contribution thing, really, a buck a month is plenty.
Credit Card (one-time)
Patreon doesn't have a specific way to make a one-time contribution, so we also have this DONATE button.
PayPal account or Credit Card
Please put your call sign in the Your comments box. You can actually put a lot in there, even though it will scroll through the little box.
Send a check?
Some of our viewers are OK with watching online, but not sending money. You can send a check (or a little cash) if you like. The address is here.
What happened to the ARVN DVDs?
If you've been with us for a while, you remember that HamRadioNow began life as ARVN: Amateur Radio/Video News. We produced a bunch of programs that we sold on DVD.
Most of those programs are now on-line, and eventually all of them will be. All of the TAPR DCC videos from the 2008-2009 DVDs are now on YouTube, conveniently listed in this playlist.
If you still want a legacy DVD and we've got it in stock, we'll sell you one! Complete the form below and we'll let you know if it's still available. If we can pull it off the shelf, it'll be $25 US, $35 International (postal rates are thorough the roof). If we have to burn and out-of-stock disk, it'l be $50 US, $60 International. We'll let you know, and if you decide to do it, we'll ask you to make a credit card or PayPal contribution, and we'll keep an eye out for it. A few of the old DVD titles are available as mp4 downloads. If you ask for one that we have in mp4, we'll offer a download (it'll be one or two GB, so you have to be able to download large files!). For that we'll ask a contribution of... what it's worth to you.
