01:20 Introduction This is the unedited audio version of the first live video show.
03:15 Live show This is our first live show and it's a little rough, primarily an equipment test.
05:25 Feedback George, N0JRJ, likes the podcast and the idea of the live show. He listens while commuting and talks about his frustrations with the attitudes of “old timers” toward new hams.

Barry, K4RUE, a recently licensed ham, enjoys the show and the music.

Mike, KF7AME, just found the podcast and is listening to the old episodes. He appreciates comments on previous shows about how difficult it may be for new hams to afford new equipment.

Bob, K4BB, just discovered the podcasts and music, and enjoys them, though he's not too sure about all of the music.

Google alert: Russ Wenner of The Techie Geek podcast mentions us in episode 40.

Twitter: Robert, WA4HRK, sends thanks for a recent episode.

Thank you everyone for the feedback.

19:20 Topic Everyone assumes everyone else has the same equipment or can afford such equipment. There are lots of ways to get equipment, and it takes time to accumulate a station. Building wire antennas is a great way to learn and is inexpensive.
22:42 Amazon Please make your Amazon purchases through the Amazon link on the web site as we get a small portion of that transaction. It doesn't cost you anything extra and is another way to support the podcasts. Thanks.
