Amateur Radio Roundtable to Offer Field Day Webcast from Sites across the US

06/20/2016

Tom Medlin, W5KUB, has announced that his Amateur Radio Roundtable will be webcasting live on Field Day weekend from the all-kids K1D Field Day site in Deland, Florida, and from selected FD sites across the US, and will take calls at its Memphis, Tennessee, studio. Medlin will webcast from K1D on Saturday, June 25, 2000 until 2200 UTC. Live video from various Field Day sites will follow for the next 2 or 3 hours, as he takes calls, Medlin told ARRL.

Amateur Radio Roundtable is watched around the world,” Medlin said. “We invite you to be part of the show. We need your Field Day operation to send a picture or two or, if you have a smartphone, get on Skype, and call into the Amateur Radio Roundtable special Field Day show.” Medlin pointed out that Field Day teams can earn 100 publicity bonus points for reaching out to the media.

He is asking Field Day teams to contact him to schedule a slot on the webcast, which will be archived for later viewing in addition to the live webcast, and to learn more.

Amateur Radio Roundtable is broadcast live on the web Wednesdays at 0100 (Tuesday evening in US time zones), and audio is simulcast via international shortwave station WBCQ on 5130 kHz.
