04:51 Dayton The Dayton Hamvention is coming up. Look for the Linux in the Ham Shack table at Dayton and say hello to Russ, K5TUX. Unfortunately, Richard will not be able to attend due to job commitments.

05:14 Thanks, again, to Jerry Taylor for his kind remarks about us on his podcast, The Practical Amateur Radio Podcast.There are a number of good amateur radio podcasts, now. Some are:

06:08 This episode is being recorded on a Sansa Clip while Richard is driving. Apologies for any pops and clicks.

07:12 Song “Funky Way” by Mark Hummel, from the album “Retro-Active”.

11:52 Rant VHF / UHF Waste landEvery VHF and UHF repeater pair within 70 miles of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area is taken. So, why can’t you find someone to talk to after 11:00pm? Years ago, that was not the case. Is the 2m band dead at night in your area? Any idea why? Let me know. Around here, 2m is busy at drive times, and a few nets in the evening, but after that, nothing. If we don’t use it, we’ll lose it. Don’t let VHF and UHF become a Waste Land

26:05 Song “Smack Talkin’ Mama” by Ray Campi, Kevin Fennell from the album “Hard Rockin’ Head Knockin'”
