Welcome to HamRadioNow.tv

The most important Amateur Radio program on the Internet*

HamRadioNow + PhasingLine
at the Hamvention®

HamRadioNow teams up with (half of) The PhasingLine Podcast for a booth at the Dayton Hamvention. You'll find us (we hope you can find us) in Booth 6419, waaaaay in the back of Building 6. That's the big tent behind the Forums building. We'll set up our studio and record interviews... maybe with you?

Here's our latest episode:

HRN 321: Dayton Setup Day

Thursday is the day most vendors arrive and set up at the Dayton Hamvention®. And because it was in a whole new place, we showed up early, got the booth we'll share with the Phasing Line Podcast ready, and then PL's Chicken with Fries and HRN's KN4AQ headed out to take a look around.


so... HamRadioNow...

HamRadioNow is an online television show, a webcast, a podcast, a YouTube show... whatever you want to call it, it's for and about Amateur Radio.  Our hosts are Gary Pearce KN4AQ, and David Goldenberg W0DHG. Gary's been a ham for over 50 years, and a broadcaster for almost that long. David's a little newer, but he's dived head first into EmComm, Scouting, and public service.

The show is recorded, not live. OK, now and then we'll push the Facebook Live button, but there's no set schedule. We average one program a week. You watch the show whenever you want, either right here on our Episode Pages, or on our YouTube Channel. It's all the same stuff. Or you can download just the audio and listen on your phone with our RSS feed.

OK, we have kind of an identity problem.

  • Sometimes we're a talk show, with guests from across the Ham Radio spectrum (little joke there). Gary thinks he does the best interviews in ham radio media, but that's really your call, isn't it?
  • Sometimes we haul the gear out on location and do a magazine-style show or mini-documentary. Not often... that's a whole lot more work. And it's a lot more expensive.
  • Sometimes we present forums and seminars from various Amateur Radio events like hamfests and conferences. That's expensive, too.
  • Sometimes it's just strange stuff, like Gary pointing a camera out the window of his car while he drives cross-country, talking on the radio, or just talking to the audience. And those shows get the most favorable comments.
  • And now we've added the EmComm Extra - episodes that have an EmComm focus. (No, there's nothing 'extra' about them... we just like alliteration).

So you never know what's coming next, though once in a while we'll talk about it, or give you a heads-up on our Facebook Group or Twitter.

* The most important Amateur Radio program on the Internet? A totally bogus, empty, made-up claim that sounds really good.
