What Should You Do After You Get Your Technician Ham Radio License?

What Should You Do After You Get Your Technician Ham Radio License?

February 19, 2021
On this week's episode of Ham Radio Crash Course, a podcast roughly based on amateur radio, hosted by Josh Nass, KI6NAZ and his no license wife, Leah, we talk about what to do after you get your Technician class license. For those who want to skip to this topic, it starts at 1:40. Do not listen to the end. There will be regrets. 
 
Ham Radio Minute: There is no one radio to rule them all. 
 
Podcast Reviews: We, like, really like reviews. Thanks for those iTunes ratings. They help the podcast reach more people to grow the hobby! 
 
Leah’s Email Corner: We answer emails about the Alinco DR-735T, ham radio comics, Before Mars on NatGeo, what happened to Bella, making butter, and what color to paint your radio.
 
 
You can email Leah if you want something discussed on the podcast at Leah@hamtactical.com
 
Technician Crash Course: Leah is rounding the 12-17 questions of what is hopefully her last practice test on the podcast. 
 
Drinks: We drink Pizza Port Brewing Company Imperial Coffee Porter and Modern Times Thundera Hazy India Pale Ale. Also, please note that IPAs suck. Nothing needs to be that hoppy. 
 
Show topic: What’s the first thing you should do when you get your Technician class license? A reminder, don’t listen all the way to the end, stop at 2h 05m. This descends quickly into a tired beer induced haze of ridiculousness. But Josh is too tired to edit it so it stays in, he was 100% full Ballmer Peak. 
 
Thank you all for listening to the podcast.  We have alot of fun making it and the fact you listen and send us feedback means alot to us!  
 
You can email Leah with shirt ideas and show ideas at Leah@hamtactical.com. Want to give use a review?
