Volunteers Needed for the MS Walk – Saturday, 03/28/15

I apologize for the late notice, but today I was asked by the local chapter of the MS Society if there are any hams that would be willing to help provide radio communication for a fund raising walk that they’re having this Saturday (3/28).  The walk is going to be at Al Lopez Park.  Registration starts at 8 am.  The walk starts about 9 and is typically finished in a couple of hours.  If you’re interested in helping, please let me know.

New Live Ham Radio Webcast

Don’t forget Amateur Radio Roundtable, a new series of W5KUB.com live weekly webcasts airs every Tuesday night at 8:00 PM Central Time (0200 UTC Wednesdays) at W5KUB.COM.

Amateur Radio Roundtable is an informal discussion of all aspects of ham radio with the intent of allowing viewers to watch this live webcast or be a guest via Skype or Google Hangout. A question and answer session with viewers will follow each topic.

The show covers all aspects of ham radio; such as, balloon launches, Satellite, go-kits,emergency comm, SDR, digital modes, DXing, home brewing, and much more. This weeks guests include Arnie Shatz, N6HC who has been a team member of many of the great DXpecitions, Eric William showing the prototype of a Cubesat that he is building, and a special guest from Sweeden, SM4VPZ

During the last half of the roundtable, every viewer is invited to make a virtual appearance on the show. Guests will need a Google+ account, microphone, and camera. Viewers will be provided a link allowing you to join. This part of the show is very informal. Just pop in to say hello, or stay a while and join in on a wide range of topics. We can have up to 10 people in the roundtable at all times.

We need your help with programming. If you have a specific subject that you would like to present in a future show, send an email to tom@W5KUB.com.
