PARP 7 – Your first radio


Podcast Number 7 – Podcast ver. 7.1 – July 20 2008 (23.3 MB, runtime 25:29)
This episode contains the continuation of a multipart feature about amateur radio.  We continue the discussion and provide information on various types of transceivers that could be used as a newly licensed hams first rig.  I talk about the hand-held type of transceiver along with mobile and base station types as well.  Don’t forget about the vendor list I introduced last time in episode 6.  This list can be found here.  Also don’t forget to check out my YouTube videos on how to make a tigertail counterpoise for your hand-held radio. 

During our news segment I share with you a new Dateline Presents episode airing on MSNBC on Monday, 21 July.  More can be found here on the MSNBC website.

I also introduce a brand new segment to the podcast called Our Fellow Amateurs.  This new segment will showcase some of our fellow amateurs making a difference in our communities.  This weeks featured amateur is WR1TX, Warren Rowe in Temple, Texas.  Warren’s website can be found at

Our featured website segment for episode 7 includes a little music for  your listening pleasure.  The Ham Band has granted me permission to include one of their songs from their “Seek You” CD.  The song is titled Monday Evening Greyline.  Please visit their websites and  Please also check out the YouTube video of The Ham Band performing Join Us on the Airwaves

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