It’s not always enough to just schlep up a whip antenna and pump out 150mw. If you are going to do radio, you ought to think as radio. Radio has its own geography and biology. It breathes with the day and the moods of the Sun and Earth.

Feel the analogue, viscous, ineffable way radio flows. Then you can actually do big and interesting things with it.

Hams often get this. Few others do these days... 🤷🏽‍♀️

@Shufei You would have loved some of the talks at TAPR DCC this past weekend. Lots of propagation measurement experiments.

@nivex I sure would! Are they going to publish video recordings somewhere?

@Shufei Yep. The full days are already up:
Day 1: youtube.com/watch?v=n9p0FpZkxE
Day 2: youtube.com/watch?v=E_NTvubFme

They're planning to go back and slice them up per talk to make it easier to find things.

@nivex Ooo, thanks heaps! I’ll try to catch these soon.
