  • This week, Russ, Richard and guest Bill, KA9WKA, have a round-table discussion of an article Russ read on the internet. Jeff, KE9V, posted the article "Ham Radio's Lost Future" and raises a number of valid points, but also some controversal ones. Our hosts discuss this at length.
  • What do you think? Is ham radio still relevant? Are amateur radio operators still innovating? Or is ham radio regressing into its past? Please send us your comments.
