  1. Very good podcast, no audio artifacts this time! I'm always happy when I see the SolderSmoke podcast on my iPod.
    you asked for a signal report and as I said, no audio artifacts this time, thanks! If I were to be super picky,(and only because you asked)a little hot on some of the "S" sounds. :) 73 awesome podcast

  2. It sounded fabulous to me too. Almost that you were sat 'right there'. S's and P and all things nice on my ears. Well done good to have you modulating our airspace again.

  3. Nice podcast, Bill. Guess I'll have to get used to hearing "kludge" as in "sludge". But Adafruit is named after "Lady Ada" aka Limor Fried, in honor of the first computer programmer, Ada Lovelace (1815-1852). So it's Ada-rhymes with data-fruit. 73!

  4. Since my days as a novice in the 70s it was klooge like stooge as in the 3 stooges ... Over the years in radio as well as professionally in the sciences stooges were numerous but I realize this may be regional and / or more a hardware community version .. I totally agree with ur definition with a genuine admiration for guys with a great intuitive feel for things ... Successful klugers aways have the knack.
    Great podcast de wa5wcp
