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.

When is an episode not an episode? When I say it isn't. And I don't give it a number.

Getting young people into our aging hobby is hardly a new or original idea, and best I can tell, we haven't come up with any one gamechanger. There probably won't be. If we are to keep our avocation alive through the next several generations... when our current demographic bubble has "moved to a higher band" as Don Wilbanks says... the key(s) will probably be a lot of smaller things, and probably more at the local level than anything generated on Mount Newington. And I think they'd agree up there.

Well, this show... not a show... seeks your ideas so I can use them in the next 20 TAPR DCC videos as one of the "Corporate Sponsor" messages. So they need to be short (30 seconds). The pitch can (must?) lead to something bigger, and hopefully something you've done yourself that worked.

In this not a show I mug the camera and point to a web page now and then, but it's mostly a monolog, so it gets a Radio Rating of A, if not an A+.
