Amateur radio - a 21st Century hobby. Post #586.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert the following URL into your browser search box: https//youtu.be/8x6x_6mDVIQ. This is one of the better Amateur Radio promotional videos online.  The Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) has done an excellent, often inspiring job of showing the world what amateur radio is , what it can do, and how it serves our local communities.  The video features Peter Goodhall (2E0SQL) working amateur radio satellites and Doug Wheelock (KF5BOC) talking about amateur radio from the International Space Station.  This video would make an outstanding introduction to ham radio for a beginner's license class.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  You can follow our blog community with a free email subscription or by tapping into the blog RSS feed.
