    I was fortunate enough to get to spend a good bit of time at W1AW with Joe Carcia, NJ1Q. He showed us everything that is going on at the station. Thanks again, Joe, for meeting me up there late at night to show me around!

    Thanks! It was pretty last minute and impromptu, so I apologize about the moving camera and such, but when the opportunity came up, I couldn't say no. It is an amazing place!

    I thought the League was still locked down in terms of accepting visitors. Has that changed?

    It is closed down to visitors, but I am up here for work with the Teachers Institute. It will be opening up soon.

    You definitely will enjoy it.

    Newington is a high density suburban sprawl, a slightly lesser suburb of Hartford. But the ARRL/W1AW is a campus island in the middle of that: spacious, ham-friendly , and welcoming. Worth a stop off I-95, or Boston for that matter.

    At 42 seconds in, K5ATA apologizes for the bad audio. Or does it just feel good to rant?

    @K5ATA Thanks for taking the trouble and making this - ignore the negative comments, wonder when they will do something like this! I didn't know W1AW was around Hartford, would love to visit someday.

    Yeah, I said the audio was rough. This wasn’t W1AW’s video, it was mine. That blame lies with me, as I said at the beginning of the video. I wasn’t there to stream, I was there to teach teachers to bring amateur radio to kids so I didn’t have my complete set up. This just popped up when I was talking to Joe and we went with it. I havent bought a lav mic for streams like this anyway, I spend all those big YouTube bucks in kids getting into radio. At least you enjoyed the opportunity to rant about something. Have a great day!

    I didn't feel that you needed to apologize for anything. I have hung with the YACHT Youth Net / Group for several years. There are a lot of of youngsters as well as their parents, and, yes, even us older farts that enjoy seeing these kids getting much enjoyment out of our wonderful hobby! Thanks for posting this.

    Really? That is all you can come up with. Wtf?

    Nice qrz work bio and resume. Too bad people skills are not included.

    Turn the dial. Turn your negativity in to yourself, not others.
