I really enjoyed these interviews. I was not aware that balloon launches were such a recent ham activity. I know several people, including Jim/N5IB, who are very active in these balloon launch activities and had no idea about the history of this facet of our hobby. Great interview.
The rocketman interview was great. Good job Jeff. I learned plenty. Good grief, the part where he was discussing everyting involved with bringing back soil/rock samples from Mars. All that for just 2 pounds of stuff. And then Jeff was saying how he is a fan of CW because he isn't comfortable around a mic but he had the best line in the whole video where he said, "I ask people what ham radio can do for me and they say it can do anything. Well I want it to mow my lawn, rotate my tires and lend me money." HAHAHAHA! I just about fell out of my chair when he said that. That was funny. Jeff is a great interviewer and I am glad you gave him the chance get behind the mic.
I am looking forward to more Ham Radio Now. Keep putting them out and I'll keep watching.
