Dec 4, 2018

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 2, we cover Ham Radio accessories and gifts for your Workbench.
