    The End of the Beginning…

    Thank You Very Much for listening to the Ham Radio 360 Podcast.



    In this real quick, last episode, I take the opportunity to 'say' good-bye.



    I appreciate the opportunity to have served you and the Amateur Radio Community over these last few years.



    73 Y'all

    Friends,





    In 2011 I achieved a nearly lifelong goal; I became an Amateur Radio Operator.



    In 2014 I began, as a means to scratch an itch, an Amateur Radio Podcast.



    The podcast, then named ‘Fo Time’ was never supposed to succeed. I had no intention of releasing any more than 5 to 10 programs. Almost 4 years later, 90+ shows, and over a 3/4 million downloads, I’m still wondering how I got here.



    Through that time, I was a small part of promoting the Amateur Radio Hobby via the medium of podcasting. What began as an experiment soon became a platform for a New Ham Operator to learn the ropes. Along the journey I was blessed with the opportunity to connect with and learn from some of the most brilliant and entertaining people on the planet.



    I have been continually astounded by my listening audience and their contribution to the efforts of what became the Ham Radio 360 Podcast and brand. Not only was I afforded the opportunity to learn from the best, I was able to share in those experiences with many others as the brand’s influence grew. Additionally the platform allowed other programs to be birthed for the good of the hobby that will continue to educate and entertain the masses.



    However, I began to realize just how much of me it took to produce quality content and maintain the brand. In October of 2017 I took a break from my regular show production with a promise to return in 2018. I upheld that promise but soon realized that the continued pressure to perform and create was more than I was willing to maintain anymore.



    With that understanding I have decided to discontinue, in it’s entirety, the Ham Radio 360 Podcast. I plan to maintain the HamRadio360.com Website and Podcast Feed of past shows and content as a contribution to the Amateur Radio Hobby.



    I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to have served you and the wonderful Amateur Radio Hobby.



    Gratefully yours,



    Cale Nelson/K4CDN

    Ham Radio 360: Millennial Falcons-KB1LQC & KB1LQD

    As you might imagine Twin Brothers Bryce and Brent have a great deal in common.  Both are Millennial Ham Radio Ops, Developers and Rocket Scientists just to name a few shared interest!



    The Brothers Salmi drop in for a conversation about their vision for the future of the Ham Radio hobby.  Raised as inventors and tinkerers these guys are poised to take that to an entirely different level with their educational development company, Faraday RF.  But before we get into the 'what' we get into the 'why' as we look back to a childhood filled with promise, learning and dreaming to a present full of building, making, and doing!



    If you're searching for proof that your beloved hobby will outlast your days-give this show a listen to be challenged and encouraged for tomorrow!

    Ham Radio 360: Lessons from Irma and My Vacation

    Ham Radio 360: Lessons from Irma and My Vacation

    It's doubtful that you haven't been affected by the recent hurricanes, no matter where you reside.  Here in the Upstate of South Carolina-we were indeed touched by Irma and in this episode of the Ham Radio 360 Podcast, I share some of my lessons learned.



    Following that, I break the news that as of this episode, #87, I will be taking a much needed vacation from the Podcast grind.  The Workbench and Field Radio Podcast will stay on schedule-but HR360 is hanging up the vacation sign and going away for a bit.  3+ years of creating content and full-on engagement has taken a toll on my balance of life so I've decided to step away, with a potential return in January 2018.  A big thanks to all who helped take a 'joke' and turn into 'something'!







    The recent storms seemed to reignite the ever-smoldering embers of Ham Radio's place in EMCOMM.  No surprise to see the many hams out in force debating the relevance of Amateur Radio in an Emergency.  Since we've never settled the no-code or Chi-com debates....what's another to continue to divide the community--I guess we really are a reflection of society after all!



    Just a few days after Irma brought strong winds and heavy rain to the farm, I took my seat at the front of the room for the local ARES meeting.  I believe that communications is King (especially in today's tech-centric world)!  I also believe that Amateur Radio should have a place in the local communications response to emergent situations or times of duress.  Finally, I believe that Ham Radio will NOT save the world; but it is a great tool to have if and when something goes wrong. period.  A few months ago the local ARES-EC asked me to help get the ball rolling here in Spartanburg County, SC.  We'll see what happens, right now it's trending positive.  The upcoming GridEX Exercise will be a stretch for our group-but I think we'll weather it well.



    The last 86+ episodes have offered many solutions to EMCOMM issues as well as introducing many aspects of the Hobby that some of us have never heard mentioned on the local 2m repeater.  If you are a new listener, I invite you to page back through our catalog of shows, pick something you're interested in and give it a spin.  If you've been here a while, thanks for sticking around!



    Thanks again for listening!



    73 Y'all,



    Cale/K4CDN
