Show Notes (contains affiliate links): How Cheap Can You Go With Ham Radio?

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 how user interface matters, NOAA gives kidnapping preparedness advice and how low you can go with ham radio.

Have a drink with us! Today, we’re drinking… Rum and Coke and later NEgronis.

Josh has a short tip with the Ham Radio Minute: User Interface Matters
