SolderSmoke Podcast #214 is FINALLY out!



WE ARE WORKING TO IMPROVE THE AUDIO QUALITY.  IN THE FIRST RELEASE OF THIS PODCAST SOME OF THE AUDIO WAS KIND OF MUFFLED.  I TRIED TO FIX IT THIS MORNING AND I THINK I MADE SOME IMPROVEMENTS.  THE IMPROVED AUDIO IS NOW AT THE LINK BELOW.  


4 November 2019 (shockingly late!)

  1. EA3JA using the Web sdr for listening to DX stations in their location is cheating! Listening to stations on a fairly local to you on a Web sdr because of high noise levels in your shack isn't!
