00:00 Promo: Ohio Linux Fest (http://www.ohiolinux.org)

00:25 Theme music

01:20 Intro: This is the unedited audio version of our first live video episode The video appears to be lost to history but the audio remains

03:15 Live show: This is our first live show and it’s a little rough, primarily an equipment test.

05:25 Feedback:

  • George, N0JRJ, likes the podcast and the idea of the live show. He listens while commuting and talks about his frustrations with the attitudes of “old timers” toward new hams.
  • Barry, K4RUE, a recently licensed ham, enjoys the show and the music.
  • Mike, KF7AME, just found the podcast and is listening to the old episodes. He appreciates comments on previous shows about how difficult it may be for new hams to afford new equipment.
  • Bob, K4BB, just discovered the podcasts and music, and enjoys them, though he’s not too sure about all of the music.
  • Google alert: Russ Wenner of The Techie Geek podcast mentions us in episode 40. Check it out at https://web.archive.org/web/20130805083259/http://thetechiegeek.com/
  • Robert, WA4HRK, sends thanks for a recent episode.

Thank you everyone for the feedback. Find us at: http://rfpodcast.info or Email us at kb5jbv@gmail.com

19:20 Topic: Everyone assumes everyone else has the same equipment or can afford such equipment. There are lots of ways to get equipment, and it takes time to accumulate a station. Building wire antennas is a great way to learn and is inexpensive.

22:42 Amazon: Please make your Amazon purchases through the Amazon link on http//:rfpodcast.info as we get a small portion of that transaction. It doesn’t cost you anything extra and is another way to support the podcasts. Thanks.

24:56 Station ID: This is KB5JBV…

25:30 Topic: Elmering… but Richard seems to have lost his train of thought.

26:50 Topic: Twitter and other social networks.

28:00 Topic: Bill, KA9WKA, distracts Richard with comments in the chat room. (Sorry – Ed.)
