Part three and the conclusion of a multi-part feature segment discussing emergency communications.  This episode we talk about go-kits. Special “Thanks” to Paul, KD0GMD who shared with us this Google video titled The Many Hats of Incident Command.  This video reminds us that everything we need to know in life, we learned in Kindergarten.  We also discuss home preparedness kits.  You can learn more about preparing your home preparedness kit and creating a plan from http://ready.gov/.  Finally we conclude this segment with a discussion about emergency communications go-kits. Dan O’Connor, KE7HLR of Reno, Nevada created a document discussing his idea for a modular go-kit system.  You can view his document here.  Dan also has a well designed amateur radio website.  Check it out.   

Our featured website segment is Flash and Pass.  The Flash and Pass system was created by Dick Fults, K6SX and exactly as the name implies, it’s a series of flash cards designed to help you prepare for the US amateur exams.  I personally will be using the Flash and Pass system as I prepare to upgrade to the US Extra class license.  For more information about the Flash and Pass system, please visit http://www.flashandpass.com/amateurradio/  

As always, thank you for listening and thank you for telling your friends.

Our very first interview segment.  This interview was recorded 3 weeks ago and while the audio quality isn’t as good as it could be, I have made changes and future interviews will sound better.

This interview is with Chris Matthieu, N7ICE.  Chris is the owner of many amateur radio related websites including  http://73s.org/, http://hambrief.tv/, http://hamfeed.com/ and HamVision.  Chris also discussed two new website ideas he is currently brainstorming.  These sites are still under construction.  http://hamiq.com/ and http://hamrad.io/.  Remember if you have ideas on how Chris might best leverage these new sites, please drop us an email

As always, thank you for listening and thank you for telling your friends.
