HAM News !!

In years gone by, we as HAM operators, relied solely on news about our hobby via magazines, such as QST, CQ, 73, QCWA Journal, etc. Occassionaly, there would be some stories in our local papers, or on local and even national TV news broadcasts, depicting HAMs in action during times of national disasters, such as hurricanes or tornadoes.

In today’s new “digital” world, we can of course, find many interesting stories on line. We can attend “YouTube” university, to find out how to use that new rig, or logging software, or for a more general HAM news update, we can find audio programs via the internet.

Here are a few examples, if you have not already tried, may want to give them a click, to see if they are of interest to you.

HAM NATION
