AmateurLogic 113: IR CAD Weather Meter

Big Island ARRL News, 17 January 2018, 0545 UTC, Post #429.

Another one of my favorite Amateur Radio programs is “AmateurLogic” which discusses a variety of workbench and experimental issues with ham radio equipment.  In edition 113, Peter experiments with infrared remote control; Tommy fiddles around with a Tinkercad;  Emile becomes an amateur weather scientist; and George tests a variety of components with an ohmmeter (remember those?).  The program runs 1:22:18 and can be downloaded here:
