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.

In this episode, we rambled about receiving antennas like beverage and loops, what “Q” is, our opinions on gear, and a college amateur radio initiative update. It was a fun one! Enjoy!

Our hard work has come to it’s end. We have published episode one of The Phasing Line Podcast. It was originally about an hour twenty, but cuts and removal of um’s and uh’s shaved it to just under 45 minutes.

Find it on iTunes, Stitcher, Pocketcasts, Overcast, and at http://phasinglinepodcast.com.

We attempt to talk about who we are, winning cookies in CQWW, packet spotting and pileups, contest operating and logging techniques, ARES and some of the bad things about ham radio, Youngsters on the Air, and cats.

We wanted to have a two-guys-and-a-mic style podcast about ham radio, without any script or topic – just winging it. It’s focus is on whatever comes to mind, as well as the progression of the hobby…aka youth in amateur radio. We plan on doing interviews, giveaways, and all that jazz. If you’re so inclined to donate, email Marty or I, and we’ll be happy to talk about buying me a Flex 6700 or Marty a couple dozen IC-7300’s since he’s in to that single-operator, twenty-radios sort of contesting. But really, making these things isn't free!
