Ham Radio 360: Field Radio – Introductions

Welcome to the First Episode of Field Radio Podcast!

I’m John, W7DBO, a third-generation ham from Utah.  I’ll be your host for the new Field Radio Podcast.  It’s my desire to make this show your bi-weekly source for all things Field Radio.  I’ll feature interviews, reviews, build projects and real-time experiences along the way.  Thank you for listening, I hope you enjoy the show!


In this episode we catch up with Cale (K4CDN) the progenitor of all things Ham Radio 360.   Cale and I chat about the Ham Radio 360 brand, his podcasting adventures and the Genesis of this Field Radio Podcast.

Following that, Chris Fielding (KG7IVS) a friend and fellow field operator tells us about his field radio portable setup (shown below) and an interesting DX contact he got while at scout camp.

Training Item
A segment of each episode is providing a training item in the fashion that you would hear on your local ARES or EmComm nets. I recorded the training item so you could play the recording over the air, or below is the link to the script that you can use/edit for your own purposes.

Current Build – VHF/UHF Build Project
A segment of each episode is highlighting various projects I am working on. Currently, I am working on a VHF/UHF Go Box for voice and digital communications. The video is an introduction to this project. This build project will be featured in the shows to come as it develops.
