One of my favorite Amateur Radio news and information programs is the ICQ Podcast, which explores a variety of technical topics, top Amateur Radio news, and equipment releases for radio amateurs.

In episode 254, Martin is joined by Chris Howard (M0TCH), Martin Rothwell (M0SGL), Dan Romanchik (KB6NU), Ed Durrant (DD5LP), and Colin (M6BOY) in a lively discussion of news affecting the Amateur Radio Community. The highlighted topic is the theory, design, construction, and use of Active Receive Antennas.

Here are the main news stories covered by our ICQ Podcast team:

“- The ARRL International Grid Chase – Dutch Regulator takes Enforcement Action – December YOTA Event – First Berlin Built D-Star Satellite – Southwestern Division Director Censured by ARRL – SDR pioneer Dr. Vanu Gopal Bose SK – Iceland to End Amateur/Ham Radio Callsign Discrimination – Copper Shortage to Raise PCB Prices.”
