W5KUB.com Show: Youth activities on USS Batfish; Antennas; and more kits

This week's W5KUB.com show (December 22nd) Emmett
Hohensee, W0QH, the chief engineer of Radiowavz,
will give us a report on youth activities on the USS Batfish
submarine, and will discuss setting up antennas. Joe Eisenberg,
K0NEB, will be back with us to talk about more kits.
After this we will open the show up to phone calls and talk to anyone
who would like to call in.

Be sure to send
your FCC related questions to Riley
Hollingsworth, K4ZDH, to AskRiley@w5kub.com.
Riley retired from the FCC's Compliance and Information Bureau as Legal
Adviser for Enforcement Program. He will be answering your questions every
few weeks on our "Ask Riley" segment

Remember our show is also on international shortwave radio station WBCQ out
of Monticello, ME on 5110 Khz, Please send a signal report to tom@w5kub.com.

Amateur Radio Roundtable is a live
weekly amateur radio webcast, held every Tuesday night
at 8 PM CT (0200 UTC Wednesday) at W5KUB.com.
The show covers a wide range of topics for ham radio operators
and electronic hobbyists; including balloon launches, satellite, go-kits,
emergency communications, SDR, digital modes, DXing, home brewing, hamfest
updates, and more. We also want to grow our shortwave listener base and will
be including programs that intrest those listeners as well. Viewers will
have the opportunity to ask questions via the chat room or telephone.

Since we changed our main video service to Youtube
Live, we have had almost zero complaints about buffering or freezing.
Quality and stability reports have been great. Because of
this, we will stop broadcasting on the back up server each night. You
will need to watch on the main server. If there are ever any problems
where we lose the main video server, we can quickly turn on the back up feed.
This will cut down on the double data we have to send out for each

We need your help. If you use Twitter, please send out a tweet 15
minutes before the show or retweet our announcement. I suggest something like
"live #hamradio show starts in 15 mins on w5kub.com 8 PM CT".
This should help increase our viewer base.

Towards the end of each show, we provide a link and viewers who have a
camera, microphone, and a Google+ account, can join the show. Your video and
audio will be on the webcast. This part of the show is very informal
and up to 10 people can join. We talk about anything the viewers want to

We would like to share pictures of your ham shack on the webcast. Send a
picture of your ham shack with a description and we will feature your shack
pictures on the show. In fact, if you give us your permission, your
shack could be used as the background of that week's webcast!

If you have a specific subject idea for a future show, send an email to tom@w5kub.com.

Forward this
message to a Friend will
allow you to share this message with your friends.

If you missed last weeks show, you can watch it here on our Youtube channel. Our shows are recorded and
placed on YouTube's W5KUB channel the following day.

Join us for fun and
interesting discussions!

Tom Medlin, W5KUB
