Amateur Radio Roundtable is an informal discussion of all aspects of ham radio, with the intent of allowing viewers to watch this live webcast or be a guest via Skype or Google Hangout,” Medlin explained. “A question-and-answer session with viewers will follow each topic. The show covers all aspects of ham radio; such as, balloon launches, satellites, go kits, emergency communications, SDR, digital modes, DXing, home brewing, and much more.”

To join Amateur Radio Roundtable, visit the W5KUB.com website, click on “Live Events,” and sign in. During the last half of the roundtable, viewer are invited to make virtual appearances on the show. Guests will need a Google+ account, microphone, and camera. A link allowing you to join will be provided during the show.

“This part of the show is very informal,” Medlin said. “You can just pop in to say hello, or stay a while and join in on a wide range of topics. Google Hangout will allow up to 10 people at a time.”

Medlin invites program suggestions. There’s more information on the W5KUB.com Facebook page. — Tom Medlin, W5KUB
