HRN 302: ARRL SE Division Director Recall Petition

At the Orlando HamCation, ARRL member Jim Schilling KG4JSZ had a booth asking ARRL SE Division members to sign a recall petition against Sarratt. Gary asked Jim to come to the SIB (Studio In a Booth) to talk about the issue. (See the EPISODE page for more detail.)

HRN 303: HamRadioNow2.0

Another mash-up of two podcasts! This time we join Jason Johnstion KC5HWB's HamRadio 2.0 show for a talkfest from the Orlando HamCation. We recorded more or less first thing Friday morning, then Gary headed out with Jason to shoot some interviews that will end up on Jason's show.

Our special guest and star attraction is HRO's Katie Allen WY7YL, marking her second appearance on HamRadioNow, and her first on HamRadio 2.0. 

HRN 304/EmComm Extra #7: Ham Radio @ the Women's March on Washington

Our guests Arthur Feller W4ART and Christine Axsmith KC3CIF put together an ad-hoc group of about 30 hams to provide communications for the Women's March on Washington the day after President Trump's inauguration. They tell us their fascinating story, including many real-world lessons for hams participating in any large-scale event.

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, and there's no set schedule, though on average we make 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.
