Since a bit after last year's National Hamfest after speaking to one of the gents involved with it I've been catching up with ICQ Podcast (link on right on desktop version of this blog), I'm currently roughly 2 years behind now and hope to be caught up before this year's National Hamfest as I have a feeling they will be there again.
I listen to the podcast when I am in the car and there's noting going on on the radio, though I do monitor the local repeaters (GB3IR and GB3HG) during work hours when I am out on deliveries, they don't tend to be active often when I am working and there is one local Amateur that seems to have this uncanny timing of calling on the repeaters just as I am unable to respond, the podcast is good entertainment and very informative so while there's nothing going on on the air I can listen to other Amateurs discussing Amateur radio related subjects and going to Amateur radio shows and rallies that I simply cannot go to such as Dayton and Friedrichshafen and talking to companies and groups attending these events.
I have the podcast on at time of writing, currently at show 249, latest show at time of writing is number 295.
I recommend this podcast to anyone who is licensed or interested in taking up the hobby, all the presenters are licensed Amateurs and they take no advertising.
