Very Informative!!!

I finally found the podcast I’ve been searching for! I learned so much more useful information in 10 minutes from this podcast than a hundred hours of listening to other HAM podcasts.
The audio examples and explanations are exactly what I needed!

Good Addition

This is another great addition to the variety of learning and information resources the ARRL has made available this year. Between the various magazines, newsletters and podcasts, there is something valuable for everyone.

newham here

New to ham radio. As usual, the old hams have to complain but offer no alternative . I happen to find this show extremely helpful. Keep up the good work!
