Part of the series: HAM radio, QSK

"I can hear you between my signals." --Definition of QSK This netcast is a personal project. From time to time in my life I've encountered things that I want to share with others. Sharing will be the name of the game here. The topics are sure to be varied, from computers and technology to politics and sociology, from pet peeves to in-depth software how-tos. I'm not sure there's any way to put a classification on what you might hear when you listen, but the hope is that no matter what the subject it will always lead to outrage, thoughtful contemplation, sounds of disgust, a nod of agreement, a fist-shake of righteous indignation. If I can spark some neural activity or inspire a conversation, I have done my job properly. I've already described the netcast to several people who have asked as "80% tech and 20% rant." That might be a good way to sum it up; or it may not. I'm jumping in the car and going along for the ride just like you are. Along the way I hope I put out some interesting information, get tons of feedback from listeners, and overall simply engage the human race (at least the part of it that is listening to me) in a broad dialog. So dip your toes in. The water's fine. You can find the OGG Feed link at the top of the page for downloading the audio episodes to your favorite podcatcher. Let's see where the mood takes us. Intro and Outro music is "Sly Bone" by Larry Seyer.

This is the 3rd in the Amateur Radio Round Table series.

Participants in this episode are:

  • Steve, KD0IJP
  • Michael, DL4MGM
  • Ken, N0CALL
  • Russ, K5TUX

No agenda items had been set before recording, so we spent our time answering Ken's questions and allowing the discussion to proceed naturally. Some of the topics of conversation included:

  • What the licensing exams are like in the US as well as Germany.
  • Resonance.
  • Antenna design.
  • RF Modulation

The next Amateur Radio Round Table recording is tentatively set for November 15, 2017 at 18:00 UTC. Watch the HPR email list for any further updates on this and consider joining in the discussion if you are a "ham" or if you aren't but have any interest in the subject.
