Bob Heil, K9EID, to Headline New Internet Show

05/18/2011

On Tuesday, May 24, Bob Heil, K9EID -- owner of Heil Sound -- will premier a new netcast show on Leo Laporte’s TwiT.tv website. Called HamNation, the show will focus on equipment, applications, tips and general information for the Amateur Radio operator. Heil’s first guest will be rock star, friend and fellow radio amateur Joe Walsh, WB6ACU. Walsh also wrote the theme music for the show. The show will be broadcast each week over the Internet at TWiT.tv at no cost. TWiT.tv is also available in iTunes.

“I have been a fan of Leo’s for a long time and recently appeared on his Triangulation 8 show,” Heil explained. “We had a blast, and much to my delight, he asked me to develop a show for and about ham radio. Since the early 1900s, much of the ham radio operators’ focus has been on building and experimenting with their equipment. Many of today’s radios are computer controlled, thus attracting new users to the hobby. Even in this day of instant Internet communications, ham radio is still the premier communication link, whether it’s for storm spotters or talking to your friends around the globe. This new TWiT.tv show will bring the existing and new users together.”

HamNation launches on May 24 at 8 PM (CDT) on TwiT.tv.
