    The popular site hackaday.com, which often focuses more on digital, hardware, "maker" and related tech DIY, is running a new series to explain and encourage people to become new hams.

    It's an interesting take, reaching out to a relatively new community.

    I'm curious to see where it goes.

    They ought to re-phrase it as a way to bypass the experimental licensing system (or WHEN using ISM bands with their restrictive power limits) - for hobby and fun projects rather than a 2-year experimental license which costs (or used to) 65 bucks. AND 65 bucks anytime you want to make a change, like, add a new band of freqs to operate in. Look at all the spectrum we get access to - from below the AM BCB now to the millimeter WL range.
