It started as a normal episode - We invited Rod Hardman VA3ON and John Jacobs W7DBO (of the Field Radio Podcast) on to talk Holiday Shopping for Hams - one of our most favorite episodes to do each year.  During this session, we showed no restraint whatsoever because we were at the 4 hour mark when we stopped recording!  While we know you generally like long episodes, we thought we’d split this one into two parts. In part 1, we cover our workbenches and radio gear (topical since Black Friday is just around the corner).  In our next episode, we will cover radio accessories and gear for the workbench.
