Hello everybody and welcome back to Everything Hamradio! Today I am going to be doing something a little different than what I normally do. I get information from a lot of different sources on the internet on things that I do on this site. I use sites like the ARRL, eham.net, and TAPR, as well as several podcast both having to do with amateur radio and not. Some of the podcast that I listen to have to do with blogging; they talk about how to write good posts, how to setup a email list, how to make online training materials, etc. Other podcast I listen to are are amateur radio related, such as Ham Nation, the ARRL New and a recent one that I found called the Hamradio 360 Podcast, formerly the Fo-Time Podcast.
The Hamradio 360 Podcast is hosted by Cale, K4CDN and is geared towards newer and younger amateur radio operators. Cale got his license in 2011, if my research is correct, with the call of KK4BRM and about two months later, switched to his current call sign of K4CDN. According to his website’s about page, he spent nearly a decade in non-commercial radio before leaving to do something else. He lives on a farm in South Carolina with his wife and 5 kids. I haven’t finished getting caught up on his podcast yet, but those that I have listened to has been great! Cale has a great radio voice. He is very easy to listen to and does a great job keeping everything flowing on his shows.
What Topics Has He Done Already?
At the time of this post, he just released episode 35 a couple days ago and has covered a wide range of topics. Most of the episode that I have listened to so far have been a interview style show. He has had a bunch of great speakers come on his show! In episode 10, he had George, KJ6VU, on his show who is heavily involved with the Bay Net Radio Club and Repeater Network in the San Francisco Bay area and also co-owner(I memory serves) of Sierra Radio Systems.
In episode 22, he interviewed Alan, K0BG, where they talked all about mobile installations. I learned a lot of stuff on this episode and really enjoyed it and has since checked out his website at k0bg.com and found a plethora of information on mobile installations. If you have any questions about mobile operations, this is a great place to start looking for those answers.
If you are looking to upgrade your license or get you license for the first time, another one of his guests was very interesting to listen to. In episode 19, Cale had Dan, KB6NU, on his podcast. I actually post Dan’s monthly article that he writes and sends out to like 300 different clubs to put in their newsletters. He is the author of the “No Nonsense Study Guide for Technician, General and Extra class licenses. His blog ranks #1 on google if you search for “Ham Radio Blogs”. It is a goal that I am striving for as well, to at least be on the first page of google.
Those are just a few that I have listened to already and there is so much more to listen to on this pod cast. Topics range from EMCOMM to SOTA(Summits On The Air) to Solar Power. I believe that he releases a new episode every two weeks. I highly recommend subscribing to the podcast; it is definitely a 5 star podcast!
Where Can I Find The Hamradio 360 Podcast?
You can find his website at Hamradio 360 Podcast. On his website you can find other information about him and other articles that he has written that are not in his podcast, so make sure that you check out his website as well. He also has a Facebook Page and is on Twitter, so go there and check him out as well.
I think that just about wraps it up for today.
