"I can hear you between my signals."
--Definition of QSK
This netcast is a personal project. From time to time in my life I've encountered things that I want to share with others. Sharing will be the name of the game here. The topics are sure to be varied, from computers and technology to politics and sociology, from pet peeves to in-depth software how-tos. I'm not sure there's any way to put a classification on what you might hear when you listen, but the hope is that no matter what the subject it will always lead to outrage, thoughtful contemplation, sounds of disgust, a nod of agreement, a fist-shake of righteous indignation. If I can spark some neural activity or inspire a conversation, I have done my job properly.
I've already described the netcast to several people who have asked as "80% tech and 20% rant." That might be a good way to sum it up; or it may not. I'm jumping in the car and going along for the ride just like you are. Along the way I hope I put out some interesting information, get tons of feedback from listeners, and overall simply engage the human race (at least the part of it that is listening to me) in a broad dialog.
So dip your toes in. The water's fine. You can find the OGG Feed link at the top of the page for downloading the audio episodes to your favorite podcatcher. Let's see where the mood takes us.
Intro and Outro music is "Sly Bone" by Larry Seyer.
In this episode I cover the controls and connectors around the outside edge of the Baofeng UV5R VHF / UHF Hand Held Transceiver
I couldn't find a link to the supposed problem with the headphone socket on the Baofeng UV5R and despite regularly plugging and unplugging the covert earpiece so far mine seems to be working OK as long as I don't push the plug too far in. Perhaps on this radio it is less of a problem than I first thought.
