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.
