The ARRL has launched a survey of members asking about maybe asking the FCC for a new Entry Level License.

This show brings together a Pundit Panel of Podcasters (aka Herding Cats) to kick the ideas around. Gary, KN4AQ of HamRadioNow did the hard work to pull this show together. If Gary KN4AQ thought he had a plan for the show (and he sort of did), it fell before the onslaught of Neal Rapp WB9VPG (HamTalkLive), Sterling Coffey N0SSC and Marty Sullaway KC1CWF (Us), and co-host David Goldenberg W0DHG.

Many words... but probably still not the Last Word! If you like the show, consider making a donation to help support what we do! Check out http://www.phasinglinepodcast.com/donate

UPDATE: Sorry for the random static blast at the very end! I have no idea what happened...

We continue our ramblings with this latest episode of Phasing Line. Marty worked NAQP, Sterling goes on about livestreaming and youth, and we did it all while Marty had a migraine!

Audio only version of N0SSC's presentation on youth in ham radio - how to get kids interested, what works, what doesn't, game theory, and more. This was his first speech at a hamfest on this topic, and the livestream broke a lot, but luckily I had an audio backup at 30:34 (hence the change in how it sounded). It was recorded 28 January 2017 at the St. Louis Suburban Radio Club (SLSRC) Winterfest hamfest.

Slides available at http://phasinglinepodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Amateur-Radios-Next-Generation.pdf and the video also available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DV2kpbq58dA
