PARP Is Hiring! Well, sort of…

Have you ever thought of starting your own amateur radio podcast?  Do you enjoy helping and Elmering others?  PARP or The Practical Amateur Radio Podcast would like to hire you…Yes YOU! 

OK, so hiring is not the right word…let’s better label it as recruit.  I’ve been producing PARP since 2008.  To date I’ve produced over 60 audio episodes ranging from how to get your license to discussing what makes a great first radio.  Yes, PARP has been geared towards the new or beginner amateur. 

As I stated, I’ve been producing PARP since 2008.  However, from time to time other life commitments have prevented me from releasing audio episodes on a frequent basis.  I’m not ready to give up on PARP as I believe many, many hams benefit from the audio content.  I have just reached a point where I could use some supplemental assistance and this is where you come in.

Each edition of PARP will reach thousands of your fellow amateurs.  If you have a specific subject you would like to discuss, share and Elmer to a large audience of hams, then PARP can give you this opportunity. 

If you are interested in this opportunity to Elmer through the Practical Amateur Radio Podcast, then please contact me. 

Thank you for your time!
