Ham Radio-Listening to the Spectrum.
A few months ago, Jeremy (KF7IJZ) and I were texting back and forth on show ideas. He suggested we do a Radio Spectrum Show. In Episode 38, that is exactly what we begin to do!
Some newer hams may not be aware of what is out there to listen to. Some may not know why they should or even how to listen to ‘it’.
There are receivers for everything. Some are low-cost like the RTL-SDR dongle. Others are simple SWL Radios. There are also specialized receivers for certain parts of the spectrum (ex: Police/Fire Scanners).
While we try to cover it all, we also try to keep from getting bogged down too often (there is a lot to cover). This is the Overview Program, we have plans to bring you specific Band and Gear shows in the very near future!
Thanks for listening!
Addendum: Freudian Slip…”Low-F’ers” not sure what happend there but my apologies to the Low-fers (loafers) at LWCA.org and, like you I’ve been laughing since I heard it. *insert embarrassed emoji*
