Ham Radio Now

The audio version of our TV programs for and about Amateur Radio (Ham Radio). The video version is hosted at www.HamRadioNow.tv (and, to be totally honest, on YouTube). Our shows come in three flavors: Talk Shows, Seminars/Forums, and mini-documentaries. Sorry for the mash-up, but any episode may be in one (or more) of those categories.

HamRadioNow viewers will probably remember Jeff Wittich AC4ZO. Jeff appeared on more than 40 episodes, and gave me invaluable help in producing many of the hamfest podcasts from Dayton, Orlando and Huntsville* Jeff and his wife Bobbie KD4ZVW need help. Last year (Fall of 2020) Jeff was diagnosed with brain cancer - Grade 4 Glioblastoma - incurable, with an average prognosis of about 2 years. He's undergone surgery and radiation therapy to remove as much of the cancer as possible, but that's what gives him those ~2 years. There's no way to remove all of it, and it will grow back. Jeff and Bobbie have had to retire early. The cancer and surgery have left Jeff both mentally and physically unable to continue the field engineering he'd done all his life. Bobbie retired to spend full time taking care of Jeff in the time he has left. They've launched a GoFundMe campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/f/lets-pay-i... to help with the mounting expenses. The goal is $25,000, which seems modest to me. They do have good insurance, but it doesn't cover everything, and with early retirement, their incomes have dropped significantly. This GoFundMe is a bridge for Bobbie to life, eventually, without Jeff by her side. So if you find yourself so inclined, maybe kick in $5 or $10. And enjoy the Best of Jeff in this video. *with a nod to Cliff W4FT, who also assisted in hamfest show production (and yes, I do miss you, West Coast Cliff!).

David visits with some of the members of Ham Cam International. This informal radio club meets via JITSI. They talk about Ham Radio, help each other learn and accomplish Ham Radio goals and provide a place to connect with other like minded Ham's from all over the planet. I got to meet and talk with a number of members and learn about their Ham Radio Community.
