ETH066 – Growing Up A Ham and The Allstar Link Network
Getting your license at the young age of 14 isn’t all that hard to believe or uncommon anymore. Building a repeater at the age of 16, that is pretty uncommon but with technology the way it is now, again not that hard to believe. Being the chief engineer of a telecommunication company at the age of 17 without a college degree, that is something that you don’t see everyday.
In this episode of the Everything Ham Radio Podcast, we talk with Jim Aspenwall, NO1PC. He did this and went onto do so much more. Jim tells us about what the Allstar Link Network is and what it can do. Later in the episode we talk about an Allstar Link Node that he has built that cost him about $100!
We talk about a blog post syndicated on this site by Andrew MØNRD where he tells about his first SOTA activation.
We wrap up the episode with some upcoming events and contests and some upcoming hamfests for the next two weeks.
