RF Podcast EP 42 Awesome Feedback

Episode 41 Awesome Feedback Show Notes

00:00 LHS Promo

00:34 Theme

01:27 Intro Back in the studio this time.The Resonant Frequency website has been moved and blacksparrowmedia.com is no more. The new web site is rfpodcast.info. Linux in the Ham Shack is at lhspodcast.info. To contact Richard, use kb5jbv@gmail.com.

03:00 Donations The two podcasts are now financially separated, so please consider making a donation to the Resonant Frequency podcast to show your support.

04:46 Feedback

Craig, KD8NJZ, posted a comment at the forums on the old site. He enjoys the podcast as well as The Practical Amateur Radio Podcast and Teen Radio Journey.

Ray, KO4RB, also posted a comment on the web site to welcome Resonant Frequency back “on the air”.

BB, KC5PIY, writes to ask for help finding episodes 1-11 and 33. BB is the webmaster for Intertie, Inc., http://www.intertie.org, “a private amateur radio 501(c)(3) organization whose members have constructed and operate 23 remotely controlled base stations, (Remote Base), interconnected through full duplex links.

These linked systems cover a large part of Texas and are an integral part of the larger Cactus Intertie System consisting of over 150 Remote Base sites and 20 affiliate clubs.” There is some sort of problem with the feed to iTunes. We’re working on it, but if you have any experiance with RSS feeds and Drupal, please contact Richard. If you’re looking for old episodes, they are all available at rfpodcast.info under the “Podcast Archive” button near the top of the page.

WW, KB9TMP, also writes to welcome back Resonant Frequency. He agrees that most of the repeaters in his area go quiet after about 6:00pm. The only busy repeater is a linked repeater www.w9win.org, and even it is not that busy. He has a simplex EchoLink node 7492, KB9TMP-L.

David, N5DBK, writes to express his appreciation for the return of Resonant Frequency, and shares his thoughts about the 2-meter “wasteland” Richard talked about in Episode 41.

22:31 Song

“Do You Mean It” by Magic Slim and the Teardrops, from the album “Raising The Bar”.

25:57 If you’re involved in the Section Manager election for the ARRL North Texas section, please contact Richard.

27:24 Feedback

Gary, WR1U, also writes in about the lack of traffic on his local repeaters, and even simplex is quiet. Gary has started a Facebook www.facebook.com continued group for blind amateur radio operators. If you’re on Facebook, look for it. Richard notes that part of the reason simplex VHF traffic has fallen off is due to uncoordinated repeaters, some D-Star, that have cropped up on the simplex portion of the band.

Ray, KO4RB, writes again to welcome Resonant Frequency back.

BB, KC5PIY, also signed up as a listener on the web site and had some problems with the process. If you’re have trouble signing up, please contact Richard for assistance.

Chris, NW5W, writes to say he is having problems subscribing to the podcast through iTunes.Ted welcomes RF back and usually agrees with Richard’s opinions.

38:22 Song

“Shame” by Magic Slim and the Teardrops, from the album “Raising The Bar”.

42:16 Topic

More thoughts about the VHF/UHF wasteland.

Remember that we lost part of the 220MHz band partly because it was under-utilized by hams. So, get out there and use the repeaters!

Resonant Frequency has taken on an advertiser to help defray costs. Look for a show about 2010 Field Day coming soon. If you’re in the North Texas ARRL Section, contact Richard to discuss the current situation. You may hear Richard on D-Star, VHF or HF. Give him a call! And send us you feedback. Without your participation and feedback we don’t have a show.

00:00 Intro Music

00:54 Intro

Recording live from the vehicle, Dave Yates style. http://lottalinuxlinks.com/Migration to the web hosting service is complete, though some things were lost. If you were signed up for an account on the old site, you’ll need to sign up again.After a long hiatus, Resonant Frequency is back. Tell your friends. If you’re on iTunes, new episodes should arrive automatically.To contact Richard, use kb5jbv@gmail.com.

04:51 Dayton The Dayton Hamvention is coming up. Look for the Linux in the Ham Shack table at Dayton and say hello to Russ, K5TUX. Unfortunately, Richard will not be able to attend due to job commitments.

05:14 Thanks, again, to Jerry Taylor for his kind remarks about us on his podcast, The Practical Amateur Radio Podcast.There are a number of good amateur radio podcasts, now. Some are:

The Practical Amateur Radio Podcast (http://myamateurradio.com)Low SWR http://www.lowswr.com/Teen Radio Journey http://www.teenradiojourney.com/Linux in the Ham Shack http://lhspodcast.info/Resonant Frequency http://rfpodcast.info/

06:08 This episode is being recorded on a Sansa Clip while Richard is driving. Apologies for any pops and clicks.

07:12 Song “Funky Way” by Mark Hummel, from the album “Retro-Active”.

11:52 Rant VHF / UHF Waste landEvery VHF and UHF repeater pair within 70 miles of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area is taken. So, why can’t you find someone to talk to after 11:00pm? Years ago, that was not the case. Is the 2m band dead at night in your area? Any idea why? Let me know. Around here, 2m is busy at drive times, and a few nets in the evening, but after that, nothing. If we don’t use it, we’ll lose it. Don’t let VHF and UHF become a Waste Land

26:05 Song “Smack Talkin’ Mama” by Ray Campi, Kevin Fennell from the album “Hard Rockin’ Head Knockin'”

31:11 Conclusion
