Happy Birthday PARP

On this day six years ago, I took a cheap USB headset, plugged it into my computer and recorded episode one of the Practical Amateur Radio Podcast.  As I stated in that short episode, I would continue to keep PARP alive as long as I had listeners willing to download, stream and listen to the content.   While PARP hasn’t always been released on the most timely and accurate schedule….six years in I’m happy to say that PARP remains very much a passion of mine and I hope it continues for many, many years.

I know I have listeners who started with me in the beginning and I know new ones are added all the time.  I thank you all for listening.  As I say on each and every episode, the practical amateur radio podcast…creating Elmers one podcast at a time and please, please, please share knowledge with others.  This is the true spirit of amateur radio!

You can access the Practical Amateur Radio Podcast a number of ways.  Search for PARP in iTunes or visit the podcast website located at hamradiopodcast.com, amateurradiopodcast.com or our original URL of MyAmateurRadio.com.  Thank you for listening.
