Gnorman speaks out

g-cropGnorman speaks out concerning rumors that he has joined the team at Ham Radio Now. “ I want to assure you that the individual seen in the videos placed on the internet by Gary Pearce and Ham Radio Now is not me. I am still performing my duties here at studio 2E in Texas and have no plans to leave my current position.” It has been the cause of some speculation when an individual appearing to be Gnorman was noticed by local HAMs in some videos Produced by Mr. Pearce. “He’s an imposter!” Gnorman told us Tuesday. Rumors of legal action are in the air. We will keep you posted as this story develops.

Donate a Dollar $1

1110_crumpled-dollar-bill_416x416While I was recording Episode 54 of the podcast today I was looking at the website statistics. I reset the stats two weeks before we released Episode 53. According to the stats we have had 18,500 visitors to our website in the last six weeks. It occurred to me that if every visitor to the website donated $2 we would be able to create content here full time. Podcasts, Articles, Video and more. Now $2 may be a little ambitious so here is what I propose. Everybody donate a Dollar. $1.00. Everything that is currently free for you to use here will remain free but everybody can afford a Dollar. Most things cost more than that. Lets see how many will donate and if we can get into going into full production here. Click the paypal link to get started. I will be interested in seeing where this goes.

 

 

Thanks

Wow, to my surprise the Hams have abandoned VHF and UHF here in DFW since I have been gone.

 

Thanks to the dumb as a rock Hams on the only repeater that have activity.

 

Format changes.
