Ham Radio Now News Feed

Ham Radio Now podcasts are the audio from our television programs (on YouTube.com/HamRadioNow). The shows are all about the hobby/service of Amateur Radio, but there are several types of shows all mixed up among the episodes. Some are talk shows, some are seminars and forums, and there's a mini-documentary now and then. The talk shows make the best audio listening, but you'll get something from almost all of them. We'll rate the "radio" quality in the show descriptions.
  1. Andre Hansen K6AH, David Erickson KB5UGF and Jim Aspinwall NO1PC join David W0DHG to discuss the SPECTRUM DEFENSE and proposed changes to the 3GHz and 5GHz bands. These changes will affect current ARDEN networks across the nation. Below are links referenced in the show. Please remember before you response, make sure it's professional and to the point. And please reach out to your served agencies and representatives.CALL TO ACTION: https://www.arednmesh.org/content/cal... COMMENT LINK: https://www.arednmesh.org/content/tem...
