03:43 Technical issues in the shack. Lots of storm activity lately, and we lost some equipment due to power problems. As a result, we’ll be producing episodes of Resonant Frequency every two weeks. Two of the three computers are back up, running Linux. There will be a Linux episode in the future. Check out the Linux Reality podcast by Chess Griffin. The most popular episode so far has been Episode 10 about the National Traffic System. A possible future episode might be about the ARES network. Anyone involved in ARES, please contact Richard and share your experiences.
09:46 We have a new feature this time, called Buzzword by Don, W9VE.
