You being here probably means you already know what ham radio is. However, I know for a fact you have friends, or acquaintances, or people you know, or brushed shoulders with but just happened to have their Facebook and Twitter info…so send them this:
It’s exactly what ham radio has been waiting for — PR outside of our own circles. In just a few hours it’s gotten over 8,000 views and growing – unprecedented for even the best ham radio channels like K7AGE and the ARRL themselves.
It’s already drawing a group of interested people to the reddit thread it was shared on.
It’s a really detailed and expansive blog authored and curated by Allison. It provides a woman’s view on the hobby – something amateur radio definitely needs more of. Most of it’s technical, with some history and discussion interspersed, but it’s a really good read overall! She writes each blog in coordination with the weekly topic on the North Texas YL net – every Monday at 8pm central on their local 440 repeater (442.325 (127.3 tone) in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
