The Rochester Amateur Radio Association in New York has us listed on their site, too.
Thanks, too, to Jerry Taylor, KD0BIK, for the link to us on his site, MyAmateurRadio.com. Check out his podcast “The Practical Amateur Radio Podcast”.
|02:10||Feedback||Don, WS4E, says he's learned a lot from the shows.
Dave, AF5U, says he likes the style of the show and other kind words.
Ray, KO4RB, likes the episodes on batteries and asks about using battery power for the home station, like an uninterruptible power supply for computers. Looks like a great topic for a future show.
Herman, KE5HYW, comments about Richard's article “What the Heck is NTS?”. He asked for a link to the Dallas/Ft. Worth NTS net, which is the DFW Traffic Net at http://www.dfwtrafficnet.org.
Neil, NG5NG, enjoys the show as always, especially the Texas drawl.
Scott, N2WMD, writes several emails. He enjoys listening on his commute, and has made a donation. (Thanks, Scott!) He's working on a MKARS80 80m SSB QRP kit.

Thanks to Don WS4E, Scott N2WMD, David AF5U, and John from Moscow, ID. Last time I said we had no donations, but there were two: David in Pleasanton CA, and Jerry KD0BIK from The Practical Amateur Podcast. Thanks, everyone. All donations help to fund better equipment for the podcast.
