Amateur Radio Roundtable
Subject: More Kits and Hamfest Reports
This week’s W5KUB.com show (November 10th) will feature Joe Eisenberg, K0NEB who will discuss kits that are becoming very popular with the amateur radio community. Joe will also provide a report on several recent hamfests which he attended.
Please send your FCC related questions to Riley Hollingsworth, K4ZDH, at AskRiley@w5kub.com. He will answer your questions on a future webcast, and in some cases, he may just call you on the phone if you leave a number. Riley retired from the FCC’s Compliance and Information Bureau as Legal Adviser for Enforcement Program.
Amateur Radio Roundtable is a live weekly amateur radio webcast, held every Tuesday night at 8 PM CT (0200 UTC Wednesday) at W5KUB.com. The show covers a wide range of topics for ham radio operators and electronic hobbyists; including balloon launches, satellite, go-kits, emergency communications, SDR, digital modes, DXing, home brewing, hamfest updates, and more. Viewers will have the opportunity to ask questions via the chat room or telephone.
As requested by viewers, the main video has been converted from Flash to HTML5! Below the chat room section, there are two blue buttons to pop out chat. if you want the chat to float, select “Pop Out This Chat" before logging in. If you also want to use the HTML5 chat room, select “Alternate HTML5 Chat". Popping out or floating the chat room will allow you to resize it, move it around on the screen, and even place it on a second computer monitor.
“Back Up Video Server" has been converted to YouTube video which some viewers prefer. Both video servers provide the same show and chat room. A nice feature on the YouTube backup video is the ability to scroll back and forth through the live video. If a viewer missed something, they can just slide the play timeline back to see what they missed!
All of our shows are usually recorded and placed on YouTube’s W5KUB channel by the next day.
We need your help. If you use Twitter, please send out a tweet 15 minutes before the show or retweet our announcement. I suggest something like “live #hamradio show starts in 15 mins on w5kub.com 8 PM CT". This should help build our viewer base.
Towards the end of each show, we provide a link and viewers who have a camera, microphone, and a Google+ account, can join the show. Your video and audio will be on the webcast. This part of the show is very informal and up to 10 people can join. We talk about anything the viewers want to discuss.
We would like to share pictures of your ham shack on the webcast. Send a picture of your ham shack with a description and we will feature your shack pictures on the show. In fact, if you give us your permission, your shack could be used as the background of that week’s webcast!
