The 2010 ARRL Field Day is less than one month away.  Can you believe it?  Are you READY?  Have you found a Field Day location to attend?  I break down these questions in this episode of the Practical Amateur Radio Podcast.  I discuss using the ARRL Field Day Locator page and encourage you to print out the 2010 ARRL Field Day Packet and read all the information ahead of the big weekend.   I also mention a few tips on helping to get your ears tuned up for Field Day by using the WebSDR website and participating in the June VHF QSO Party coming up on June 12-14.

Transcript

The Practical Amateur Radio Podcast celebrates two years of providing educational content to the amateur radio community.  Thank you to all listeners who have helped make the podcast successful.  In this episode we discuss ways to “Pay it Forward” to help your fellow amateurs.     

Our featured website segment is the WebSDR website.  If you’re new to amateur radio and don’t yet own or have access to an HF receiver, WebSDR is a great way to listen to the HF bands.  

Our featured gadget is not really a gadget, but more like functionality.  Have you ever wished there was a way to lookup callsign information via SMS text message?  I discuss two options in this segment.  Please visit the Cleveland Amateur Radio Club or CallByTxt.org to learn how to use these services. 

All this and a little bit more from Jerry Taylor, KD0BIK
