Description

On this week's episode of Ham Radio Crash Course, a podcast discussing amateur radio, hosted by Josh Nass, KI6NAZ and his no license wife, Leah, we cover emergency comms, what to do if there is no power, no internet and no cell service. Hold onto your hats, it’s our longest ever podcast and it’s a long and windy ride. 




 

Ham Radio Minute: Why you should get your license. 
 
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 talk about government overreach, SATCOMs, reliable comms via ham radio across the country, neighborhood watch radio communications while Leah butchers names worse than a new substitute teacher. 
 
We also talk about what a nation’s collapse looks like, as discussed in this article

Josh mentions this subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/collapse/wiki/index
 
You can email Leah if you want something discussed on the podcast at Leah@hamtactical.com
 
Technician Crash Course: Leah nails a few easy questions and learns at what voltage cars get pointy. 
 
Drinks: After a 10 day waiting period and a few trips to the store, we got our hands on some Twisted Tea. No one was harmed in the making of this podcast.
 
Show topic: Josh talks about what to do if there is no power, no internet and no cell service. It goes off the rails at the end, fair warning. But I’m not sure no one reads these show notes anyway so I’m not sure why I wrote this warning at all. 

 
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!
