Happy Thanksgiving Y’all!



  1. I was worried that y’all were going to bust on Yaesu the whole time; but that was an awesome episode! A Raspberry Pi episode would be awesome! I’ve been reading up on those think they’ve got HUGE ham application!

    Thanks and a Happy Turkey-Day to you and yours!

  2. Definitely need to go back and listen to this episode again. (and again) Thanks to all of you for the great tips and guides. Updating my Amazon wish list now…

  3. At the risk of sounding like a whiner… (don’t say ‘too late’)
    Is there a more complete show notes list somewhere? I listened to this episode during my drive time, and I can’t take notes. I came to the website but there were some things I remember you talking about that I don’t see listed here. All in all, though, I can’t complain. I guess I just need to listen to it again when I’m not driving… =)

    1. Well, there were….and my hosting co ate them. I hope to get that back up later this week into the weekend. Sorry!!!!
      If we can help, feel free to email me and I’ll get you to the correct person-thanks for listening! K4CDN
