I think that's a great idea! 

I'm not a HAM. I have no clue about radio. I would love, love to hear more.

May I make a suggestion/request? Take baby steps! You as HAM radio operators 
know a lot about radio that noobs like many of us in the audience do not 
understand and can barely comprehend. I've listened to lots of HAM-related 
stuff (podcasts, friends talking, etc) and have yet to truly understand how to 
get started down the HAM path. For example: 

Episode One:
- do I have to have a license before even dipping my toe into this?
- how do i listen?
- how do i broadcast?
- what gear do i need?
- where do i find the gear that i need?
- once i am licensed, what's the first thing i should do?

Episode Two:
- how do i get HAM going on Linux?
- what do i need to install? do i need to recompile my kernel with the HAM 
support built in?
- what applications will i need and how do they relate to the components 
discussed in episode one?
- are there any hardware requirements for this or is it all in software?
- once i get the software up and running, what's my first step? do i go to a 
chat room radio channel or just ping someone I know and talk? or what?

Just some ideas!

    Calling HPR Ham radio operators. During the 24 hou New Years Eve show Ken 
Fallon again brought up his request of a show recorded via Amatuer Radio. I 
got to thinking about that, and thought oh what the hell, I'll give it a try. 
This email is an attempt to enlist any fellow Amatuers to help get this done. 
I am looking for ideas and a QSO partner(s). I am active on HF, and echolink, 
but not on D-STAR (yet). Please drop me a line if you'd like to help either 
on-air or with ideas.
