Ham Radio!

Right. Any of you guys interested in a ham/shortwave radio group starting
up at MadLab? Would anyone like to get involved, if I start making concrete
steps and introductions?

Hi Dave,

My cards on the table…I’m not really interested. I do RF work at work all
day and one of my colleagues is a HAM…but it’s not for me

I could be interested. My dad’s been a HAM as long as I can remember (and
is an examiner I believe).On Feb 4, 2012 3:34 PM, “Dave Mee” davemee@gmail.com wrote:

I am licensed (G7VRI), and made some movement towards hooking up with the
Stockport Radio Society when we were still Stockport Hackspace, but at the
time, they weren’t interested.

I can bring (and, actually, may already have done so accidentally!!)
Amateur tuned radios into MadLab and can explain some of the basic
principals behind the hobby, plus some of the operating modes we use, but
for more details, you might be better off approaching Manchester Radio Club
or Stockport Radio Society.

OK, I will admit it, I have a radio licence too. (G6NVU).

The problem is that the radio amateur community as a whole can be quite conservative, and the average age of a typical Amateur is embarrassing high.
The hobby doesn’t quite have the appeal that it once had, but part of that is due to the fact that some of amateur’s best tricks have already been incorporated into everyday communications in the form of the mobile phone network and the Internet, neither of which require a licence to use.
Despite everything there is some cutting edge stuff going on within the hobby, but it doesn’t tend to grab the public’s imagination.

I’m not really interested in amateur radio, but I know we have a box of HAM
gear in the cupboard that jon brought over.
