For the 2nd time in two years, Radio Shack has declared bankruptcy and stores are closing nationwide. I wrote a eulogy to that store we all 'love to hate' two years ago and though now would be a good time to share it again: http://www.jpole-antenna.com/2015/02/06/good-bye-radio-shack-well-miss-you/

Today on a Holiday episode of Ham Radio Q&A, we’re going to look at some items that would be ideal gifts for any ham, both new and seasoned. This year’s selection has a price range from about $30 on up to whatever you want to spend, so I’m sure there is something here to fit just about any budget. . .

In my latest video, I build an ultra portable go-box around the Luiton (Leixen) LT-898UV mobile radio. Plus I expose an audio problem with the radio (and one way to fix it). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-opfjeYPx24

Everyone likes balloons. As you get older, the balloons just get bigger. This week on my blog, read about and view the video of a vertical HF antenna we lifted 200 feet in the air with an eight foot weather balloon.
