Amateur Radio Videos – 10/19/12

Here are some more videos for your amateur radio viewing pleasure.

History of the transistor radio. The PBS show History Detectives featured a segment on the Regency TR-1 transistor radio, the first transistor radio ever made, and some of the other early transistor radio models. The website says the show will air on October 28, 2012. (I know it’s only October 19, but the PBS website says this show will air on October 28.)  Look for the segment at the 28:45 mark.

K6BBQ at Pacificon 2012. Rem, K6BBQ, ask some amateur radio celebrities, including Dave Sumner, K1ZZ, and Gordon West, WB6NOA, some amusing questions.

    I believe that last video is what the kids nowadays would call “An Epic Troll” :) Deliberately designed to seem ignorant in order to get a response, raise hackles, and generate “lulz”. Not my cup of tea!

    The other two links, on the other hand, are much more interesting!
