From K5ACL’s Blog: Slack Messenger for Radio Clubs

Slack! An excellent way for your Ham Radio Club to keep in touch!

K5ACL has a fantastic idea. Use Slack Messenger for your radio club’s business outside of meetings and nets.

I think a lot of amateur radio conservative types might not gel with the idea of using online chat for ham radio stuff (why not use a radio?!?) but it is the 21st century, and basically everyone has a smartphone on them always – not a radio.

Slack has been a super efficient way to chat and message surrounding a topic, and it can be a very effective and immediate way to get work done.

And it’s free.

Also shoutout to K5ACL’s Blog – really well written and informative stuff there. Follow his blog at https://k5acl.net/

edit: not everyone has a smartphone, but basically everyone does, and if not a phone, a computer will work too.

ARRL Collegiate Ham Radio Initiative Forum Livestream

If my cell signal is good enough, I will be streaming the ARRL CARI forum at Orlando Hamcation. See http://www.youtube.com/c/N0SSC/live, and stay tuned to www.twitter.com/n0ssc for more info and cancellations.

It’ll be separately recorded and posted at a later date, since the livestream quality will be pretty meh.
