Feedback
Lawrence, of Mobile, AL, recently found the podcast and is looking forward to taking his license test. He asks if the ARRL General class manual includes the Technician material. No, each study guide contains only material for that license exam. See also QRZ and HamTestOnline for practice tests.

Buzzword
Calling frequencies. From eHam.net: "A standard frequency where stations attempt to contact each other. Example -- 146.52 is the North American FM simplex calling frequency."
Bob, K0NR, writes in his blog about using 146.52 calling frequency on 2m. Bottom line: the calling frequency is for calling, not for ragchewing.

24:23
Song
"Don't Lose My Number" by Smokin' Joe Kubek and Bnois King from the album "Blood Brothers"

26:28
Topic
DX Cluster: originally, a way for amateurs to let each other know when DX appeared on the bands, via the packet radio network. It has evolved to use the internet in addition to packet radio. Richard describes connecting to a DX cluster node via telnet, as well as logging programs that display DX cluster spots.

"Part Time Love" by Phantom Blues Band from the album "Out of Shadows"
