RF Podcast EP 33 Who’s Repeater? 2

Episode 33 Who’s Repeater? 2

00:00 Theme music

00:55 Intro:

01:20 Feedback:

Dave, W6DTW, Made a donation. Thanks!

Neil, NG5NG, likes CW and digital mode, and also made a donation. Thanks, Neil!

Stan, N7ZQT, recently found the program. He runs a simplex echo station node 146.535 in Tuscon, AZ, and would like to broadcast the Resonant Frequency program.

W5RAW, had some trouble downloading the Episode 32. There have been some changes to the web site, and that should be straightened out. Check out the new Resonant Frequency web site at http://rfpodcast.info

09:00 Donations: All donations are welcome, at any amount. All proceeds go directly into better equipment for the podcast. We have a new mixer and microphone, so you should hear the difference here, and atLinux in the Ham Shack.

10:54 Live Show? Richard is considering a live version of Resonant Frequency which would be a round-table discussion of amateur radio topics. If you have a microphone, perhaps with a web camera, andwould like to participate, contact Richard.

12:35 Chat room: Check out the Resonant Frequency chat room on FreeNode.net, #resonantfrequency. There’s also a link at rfpodcast.info.

14:18 Song: “Voodoo Chile” by Jean Paul Rena and Terrawheel, from the album “Can’t Be Satisfied”.

18:26 Topic: Who’s Repeater Is It Anyway?, Part II. Richard continues his discussion of what can and can’t be said on a repeater, and a warning notice issued by the FCC to an amateur that ignored the wishes of a repeater control operator. A copy of the letter can be found here: http://www.fcc.gov/eb/AmateurActions/files/Coyle09_05_07_5106.html.

26:35 Rant: Richard talks about the use of APRS in public service events, and how that presumes that everyone has such capability. This often excludes the newer hams that may not have all the equipment or the resources to acquire the equipment.

36:00 Song: “The Boogie Man” by Papa Don McMinn, from the album “Boogie Man”, available here:

39:03 Conclusion: Thanks to IODA Promonet for the music, and to Cheryl and Russ.

41:43 Closing theme:
