A few posts back, I wrote about podcasts worth listening to. I want to draw your attention to two additional ham radio podcasts:
- The Practical Amateur Radio Podcast by Jerry KD0BIK, available on iTunes or http://myamateurradio.com/
- Teen Radio Journey by Paul KC9QYB, available on iTunes or at http://www.teenradiojourney.com/ This podcast is intended for teenagers, so I am definitely outside of that target audience. I mention it here because anything that involves youth in amateur radio is a good thing.
I just stumbled onto the radio contesting site radio-sport.net. It has probably been there for decades and I am late to the party. It is worth checking out if you are into contesting.
I went through the entire day without thinking about buying an iPad. To quote Joey from Friends, “its all a moo point.” Even if you do want an iPad, why would you buy the first implementation, given Apple’s track record? There will be a better one coming along soon enough. Take a look at the Fake Steve Jobs blog.
The high-powered think tank at the Fi-Ni Report has published some brilliant work:
- The investigative team has uncovered yet another scandal in the radio sport world, this time relating to the Poisson d’Avril Contest
- AM (Ancient Modulation) is getting a strong endorsement from the CQWW Contest, pushing aside that sissy SSB modulation
