- The guys reminisce about Dayton Hamvention 2013. A big thanks go to all who stopped by the LHS booth. A big thank you goes to the mystery Robin Hood who robbed his wallet to give to the poor podcasters from Linux in the Ham Shack. There was a raffle for a Pignology Piglet from Sierra Radio Systems. Russ got the piglet at a reduced price and gave it away. Thanks go to George (KJ6VU) and Nick (N3WG) for the reduced price and for other work that they have done for Linux in the Ham Shack.

The hosts interview the lead developer in the main segment of the program. On top of that, they discuss topics from milk shakes to retirement, announce the show's most famous listener to date and bring back The Badger. You don't want to miss any of this goodness.
