So, You Want to Get into the Ham Radio Hobby
Come spend some time with me in this ride-along video blog episode, the first in a series that I am doing to help you begin your journey into the amateur radio hobby. This video is an experiment in that I am trying out this format as a type of “chat” in which I share my thoughts and experiences regarding the ham radio hobby, and how you might start out exploring the hobby.
Regarding the experiment: I have tried to edit the sound to reduce the road noise. Please comment on the noise level, and how well you can hear me talking about the topic. Should I ditch the ride-along format? Comments directly on the YouTube channel are better if you leave a comment on the actual video as displayed on my YouTube channel.

I feel asleep 3 times and still did not finish the video, hi. I guess.
You should talk with your doctor about sleep apnea. It can be a killer. Falling asleep three times in such a short amount of time can be indicative of poor quality of sleep. Be careful.
Nice casual start in, as you say, a huuge topic. Do some more and see where it goes. Road noise was no big deal. Might also mention Ham Radio for Dummies to those expressing interest. 73
Hi Tomas. Thank you. Great, useful – would welcome ur permission to use video for potential/newbie ham information purposes at our ham radio club (NZART Branch 42, Titahi Bay) here in ZL? IMHO format is fine – more engaging than common static background talking head (subject to local road safety and rules caveat).

Great subject but a “ride-along”-type video is rather annoying
distractions are not interesting for those who want to learn about the Hobby.
