Description

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 the best antennas, the longest emails corner yet and what TV and movies get wrong about ham radio. Record breaking, longest podcast ever posted to HRCC.










 

Ham Radio Minute: What is the best antenna? HTs, Mobile and HF.

Technician Crash Course: Not going to spoil it but Josh was so excited about this week’s exam review with Leah.  
 
Drinks: After Josh made fun of Leah’s in-home juice bar, he finally sees the error of his ways when Leah makes a juice medley to go with today’s vodka, club soda and citrus juice drink. There’s not a name but if there was, it would likely be a skinny screwdriver. I bet you weren’t aware that screwdrivers came in any different sizes but we don’t body shame screwdrivers. 
 
Show topic: Josh talks about all the things that drive him a little nutty about ham radio portrayals in TV and Movies. Stranger Things, Walking Dead, Die Hard, Contact, just to name a few.
