    Now for the shameless plug for my latest venture :)

    After more than a year of thinking and mulling ideas over back and forth with fellow Ham , Steve KD0PXX , we have finally actually produced something.
    It is a video show that is primarily for Amateur radio hobbyists , but something that we think that ALL radio fans would like.

    Unlike the overproduced , over rehearsed smiling faces that want you to buy something , this show has no sponsors and no agenda other than providing an engaging half hour show that reveals more of what really goes on in Ham shacks around the world.

    Being based in northern Europe I , Greg OH2FFY , bring my experience with Ham radio from Europe , Australia , and the UK.
    Steve covers the scene in the United States.

    While I am now out of the electronics industry Steve is still working in electronics servicing and repairs , and has a personal favorite being older tube type technology.

    His technically accurate and thoughtful input to the show offsets my 'fun' relaxed and easy going style and combined this creates a conversational warm atmosphere on the show. , which is EXACTLY the way it is when a couple of Hams get together and talk about their projects and whats going on.

    This show is fast paced , easy to watch and we believe has GREAT potential.
    We think its time to ditch those old stale Video shows , and grab -- 'The Ham Sandwich' :)

    Nice video !! - Seems a lot of ham radio video programs have sponsors these days and therefore commercials embedded in them as a result :( - nice to see one that doesn't.
    Funny how you confused Omaha with Idaho , but not being from North America and not familiar with our geography it's understandable (they do sound a little similar). I've met Americans (from the east coast) who actually think Ohio and Iowa are the same state pronounced differently - they should know better but they don't LOL... Keep up the Great Work - look forward to upcoming episodes !!

    Hi Paul,
    Well I have a good reason for that ......
    It is a result of learning US geography from the Tv show , 'The Simpsons'.

    I am still wondering where Springfield is :)

    Thanks for watching buddy :-D

    We have many Springfields all over the place - would not be surprised if each state has one - probably why they picked the name since it's very common :)

    Very likely :)

    Regarding show sponsors and advertising.
    Both Steve and I have discussed it already as a possibility down the road and how we would handle it.

    I think shows that have advertising are so surprised and unprepared for it when it gets offered ,, that they make bad decisions and deals.
    Even if a sponsor is EXTREMELY generous , so generous enough to pay for the whole show , that doesn't mean that they should be plugging the sponsors products every ten seconds.

    Advertising and sponsors plugs can be handled in appropriate and subtle ways , but many shows with sponsors fail in this regard , and that damages the show in the end.

    Steve and I agree that we would rather NO SPONSORS or Advertising if that is the way it would go.
    The goal is to serve the Amateur radio community , not fill our pockets with Greenbacks , or in my case Euros :)
