ham it up

Love the show and info and have learned a lot. The one complaint I have is that the Gordo guy laughs and comments under all the others videos and talks which can be quite irritating after a while. If it was done just once in a while as if he were really excited about something then fine but he does it ALL THE TIME>>>>>> That said if you aren’t as irritated by that as I am then you will pick up some good tips and learn some interesting stuff from the rest of the crew. They have a lot of knowledge between all of the host of the show.

Best thing for ham radio in a long time! This show has something for everyone: the person looking to become a ham, new hams and experienced ham's. there is always something good. I would rather watch an hour if this learning something new and entertaining, rather than watching broad cast TV that makes jello of your brain. You can even hook up your iso device to your TV (not tube type) and watch the program from it. Now that's TV!
