Dilbert, Shep, Dex, Pete, Farhan, and Wes! N2CQR Presentation on Homebrewing to Local Radio Club

Dean KK4DAS asked me to speak to our local radio club, the Vienna Wireless Society.   It was a lot of fun.  I talked about my evolution as a homebrewer, some of the rigs I made, the moments of joy, and the tales of woe.   You can watch the presentation in the video above. 

I was really glad to be able to explain in the presentation the importance of people like Pete, Dex, Farhan, Wes, Shep and even Dilbert. 

I was also pleased to get into the presentation the N2CQR sign that Peter VK2EMU made for me.  Thanks Peter! 

Here is the URL to the YouTube video (also above): 

And here are the PowerPoint slides I used: 


  1. Great presentation!
    I think Duncan would enjoy the ZL2CTM videos. They are the best I've seen and I've watched them all. The 4SQRP and QRPme kits are a good start as well and economical.


  2. As mentioned in the video, I think a good general coverage receiver would be a good tool for Duncan. He'll get a better understanding of the airwaves. It also makes a great piece of beginners test gear to test circuits with. Especially oscillators and transmitter circuits.

  3. Hi Bill: The video link above does not seem to work. This, however, does: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHSr-v4QO7Q
