Phasing Line BONUS: Amateur Radio’s Next Generation by N0SSC

Audio only version of N0SSC’s presentation on youth in ham radio – how to get kids interested, what works, what doesn’t, game theory, and more. This was his first speech at a hamfest on this topic, and the livestream broke a lot, but luckily I had an audio backup at 30:34 (hence the change in how it sounded). It was recorded 28 January 2017 at the St. Louis Suburban Radio Club (SLSRC) Winterfest hamfest.
