Ham Radio 2.0 video program launching Kickstarter campaign

Jason Johnston, KC5HWB, announced today that he’s launching a new video series called Ham Radio 2.0. To help fund the project, he’s also launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise $5,000 in a little less than two months.

Johnston’s video podcast joins several other popular shows for hams including Ham Radio Now, AmateurLogic and Ham Nation.

This isn’t Johnston’s first radio-related venture. He sells radio equipment on his Grapevine Amateur Radio website and is a long-time blogger at Grapevine Ham Radio.

He says that his goal is to provide a wide variety of episodes including featuring new radio debuts and hands-on, how-to instructional videos.

Some of the topics he plans to cover include:

  • New radio reviews
  • Featured dealer profiles
  • Hamfest reviews
  • Coverage of DXpeditions and SOTA activations
  • Tech talks
  • Featured homebrew gear

Johnston hopes to leverage success he’s had with other ham-related videos. “With promotions, I see potential for getting tens of thousands of views on every video,” he says. “Promotion is the key, and will be my main focus with kicking the project off initially.”

    Head over to the W2AEW YouTube channel and try that on for size. No blah-blah-blah, instead direct and to the point. Less about contests, hamfests, SOTA, IOTA, DX, etc., and no ad segments. The W2AEW vids are a lot more about great technical topics. Not that I’m against non-technical stuff, but there’s too much of it out there in the Ham video blogosphere – in my opinion. 73’s
