RFC Show Notes Episode 034

00:00 Opening Theme “Give It All Away”, by midliFeCrisis, from the album “Live from the Loft”
00:53 Introduction Field Day has come and gone. Richard had a great time. Send us your stories!
01:55 Feedback Bob, K4BB, just discovered the podcasts and music, and enjoys them, though he's not too sure about all of the music. Thanks, Bob. Remember, this is “infotainment”. 🙂

Thanks, too, to everyone following us on Twitter and other social networking sites.

Bob, WA4HRK, thought the last episode was one of the best.

The Techie Geek podcast gave us a mention. Thanks, Russ. Check out his podcast.

Hacker Public Radio has also talked about us.

05:57 Web site The web site has changed, and we've added an OGG feed. If anyone wants to help with the website, show notes, audio content, or even written articles, send Richard an email at kb5jbv@gmail.com
08:48 Donations None. Please consider donating whatever you can to the podcast. Or, if you're buying something at Amazon, click the Amazon link at the web site, as that will help out, too. If you have a ham radio product or service that you'd like to advertise, contact me. We're considering running ads on the website for a fee. The web site also has a link to make a PayPal donation.
12:42 Song “Sam Lay Shuffle” by Sam Lay And His Appaloosa All-Stars, from the album “Live on Beale Street”.
15:08 Topic One of the questions that came up at Field Day was about a fellow's dipole antenna, a G5RV. What's the best height and does it have to be a straight, flat dipole? How does the ground affect things? Most wire antennas are a compromise in one respect or another. What about NVIS (near-vertical incident skywave)?
29:31 Song “Ever Be Here Again” by Kelly Joe Phelps, from the album “Lead Me On (15 Year Anniversary Edition)”
33:36 Conclusion Thanks everyone for your mentions on blogs, sharing the podcasts, etc.
