What Baofeng Should You Buy, We Finally Tried Skyline Chili and Giveaway Winner Announcement
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, Josh answers one of his most asked questions, "What Baofeng
Should I Buy?" Josh and Leah also share their experience having
Skyline Chili for the first time, Josh learns that he's not that great
at idioms, and Josh answers a question about what length you should
cut your antenna to. We also completely forget to do the General Test
Prep questions because we were so excited to talk about Skyline Chili
but we shored it up to under 2.5 hours.
This episode, we also announce the Chameleon Emcomm II Antenna Giveaway Winner!
