Show Notes (contains affiliate links): How To Analyze Your Handheld-Handy-Talkie-Walkie (OK, all bases covered) Radio Antenna 

 

On this week's episode of Ham Radio Crash Course, a podcast roughly

based on amateur radio but mostly made up of responding to emails from

listeners, hosted by Josh Nass - KI6NAZ and his reluctant wife, Leah -

KN6NWZ, we talk about not getting too fancy, winter safety tips that aren’t so great, and how to analyze handy-talkie radio antennas. 

 

Have a drink with us! Today, we’re drinking… Trader Joe’sTiramisu Pastry Stout. 

 

Josh has a short tip with the Ham Radio Minute: Don’t get too fancy.
