    That's an antenna switch in the background!

    We got off to a little bit of a rocky start as Lee was delayed and I was a little nervous not knowing where the show would go. A big shout out to KG5AHJ, W9FFF and KD8VRX/VA2VRX for coming to rescue the day. Lee did show up and gave us an amazing discussion on parts of the museum that I had pictures of and we had a short Q&A with the audience at the end of the show.



    Also a special Shoutout to M7CPT for delaying his video to give us some extra time for Lee. Be sure to check this one out.

    If you're interested in a HAM SPECIFIC group tour of the museum, join TOADs discord here: https://discord.gg/tsVKqfv and let's get it setup in the #Nuggets room

    Thanks and 73s

    Good overview, everyone should see it.


    VOA antenna info



    Clyde Haehnle, developed the specifications for the Voice of America antenna system at the Bethany (Ohio) Relay Station that Rhombic was 90% efficient by re-phasing the power instead of heating up termination resistors. More info

    Shame on Lee for getting delayed throwing all of hamTV into a broadcast frenzy. HamTV, All Ham All the time. It's the QVC of Youtube. (All typed in a special sarcasm font that is not installed on many devices and most people won't recognize it). Rule number 12 of broadcasting...don't besmirch the guest.

    I am listener of the VOA since 1974. It was very terrible Soviet Union time. VOA and Radio Liberty, - just 2 broadcasting radios in Georgian language which we excepted everyday. Thank you to VOA again

Thanks for a great video report. 73 Vic KE8JWE
