Episode 16 Show Notes

Opening theme:00:00

Intro: 00:32 We are not dead!


The problems here: everything was ready to go, but a lightning strike zapped several computers and other equipment, so the work on the episode was lost. Sorry for the delay in getting this one out. Over 700 on the Frappr map! We were #1 on the iTunes Amateur Radio podcasts!
After the lightning strike, we had a death in the family, and a birth. It’s been busy!

Feedback: 09:10

Jim N0UWY writes about troubles with the Frappr map. If you’re using Linux, you’ll need to have the Flash player installed to access the Frappr map.

Adam KC2RRT is a recent listener, and a recent ham. He’s also working with his scout troop to get them interested. He’s enjoying the shows, and suggests a more in-depth episode on EchoLink.

Nate WY0X says that the URL for Episode 15 is wrong, or the file is missing. That should be fixed now. The episode has been reposted and seems to be working correctly.

Tim KI6BGE recently upgraded to General, likes the show and the music. Tim is also on D-Star and enjoys using Ubuntu Linux.
