Thursday night at 9 pm Eastern, Ward Silver, N0AX will be here to talk about why contesters don't like people saying "Please Copy" and looking at ways that hams can be more efficient communicators. Is it polite? Or meaningless words that waste precious time? And you can join in on the conversation by calling into the show!! Tune into Ham Talk Live! Thursday night (8/23) at 9 pm Eastern time (Friday 0100Z) by going to hamtalklive.com. When the audio player indicates LIVE, just hit the play button! If you miss the show live, you can listen on demand anytime also at hamtalklive.com; or a podcast version is on nearly all podcast sites a few minutes after the live show is over. Some sites include Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Google Play, SoundCloud, and iHeart Podcasts; and it's also available on YouTube. Be sure to CALL in with your questions and comments by calling 812-NET-HAM-1 live during the call-in segment of the show, or by Skype. Our username is hamtalklive. You can also tweet your questions before or during the show to @HamTalkLive. And while the intent is to generate conversation on the show... I have a pretty good idea what's going to happen in the comments below. So please, keep it civil.
