Amateur Radio Roundtable History Making Webcast - Heard Island
Last week (March 22) Dr Bob Scmieder, KK6EK, from the Heard Island Dxpedition team, was on our show. It was audio only because the team had not reached the island and they were still on the Braveheart. The boat was rocking and their satellite phone, needed for video, would not lock in to the satellite. Since last week's show, they set up on the island and their video connection has been successful.
This week (March 29) we will make ham radio history again by having Dr. Bob Schmieder, KK6EK, and the Heard Island Dxpedition team, on our live Tuesday night show with both audio and video. You can follow the progress of the team at VK0EK.org. This DXpedition is in one of the most remote locations in the world. As predicted, bad weather caused a short delay setting up the different antennas. Rich Holoch, KY6R, is helping coordinate our interview with the DXpedition.

We are glad to have Skip Morris, K5FC, back with us to discuss our experiences in ham radio over the last 50-60 years. Please join us in this fun discussion!
Also, co-host Frank Howell, K4FMH, will be with us as we talk to Rich Moseson, W2VU, Editor of CQ Magazine. Rich will give us a hint as to what will be in the next issue.
Remember to send your FCC questions to Riley at email@example.com for discussion in the program. Riley is a retired FCC Special Counsel for enforcement and brings a lot of knowledge to this area.
