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.

The US House has passed HR 1301 (the Amateur Radio Parity Act), and we're awaiting (some of us hoping, some not) for passage in the Senate. We've never been this close.

This process didn't begin in 2012, but that's the year we took a big step... backwards, it seemed at the time. The FCC had declined to issue rules overriding HOA covenants on its own. At the ARRL's urging, Congress directed the Commission to do a study on the actual effect the restrictions had on hams.

We were at that point when Gary interviewed then ARRL CEO Dave Sumner K1ZZ to find out more. This is Episode 8 of what was then a very new podcast! This was just a Skype talking-head show, so it gets a Radio Rating of A.

And yes, we're at the end of the month, so we're using up our allotment of storage. We'll pick one more tomorrow. Maybe two.
