New York (May 17, 2011)—Microphone manufacturer and ham radio expert, Bob Heil, will premier a netcast show called HamNation on May 24, 2011.
The show focuses on subject matters for the ham radio enthusiast. Heil, who founded his namesake Heil Sound, will have guests on the show, the first being rock star, friend and avid amateur radio operator, Joe Walsh, who also wrote the theme music.
Set to premier on Leo Laporte’s TwiT.tv network on May 24 at 8PM CDT, HamNation will focus on equipment, applications, tips and general information for the ham radio enthusiast. Heil explains, “I have been a fan of Leo Laporte’s for a long time and recently appeared on his Triangulation 8 show. 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 operator’s focus has been 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 radio434256299912269 is still the premier communication link whether it’s for storm chasers or talking to your friends around the globe. This new TWiT.tv show will bring the existing and new users together.”
