This weekly podcast is a conversation, a "QSO", between amateur radio operators, or hams. The purpose is to expose prospective, returning, and new ham radio operators the diverse areas of the hobby from amateur satellites to operating on remote Pacific islands through interviews with long time and expert ham radio operators.
 
The Field Radio Podcast is dedicated to exploring the amateur radio hobby through the lens of getting you and your gear outdoors. Your host, John W7DBO, will explore what gear works best, how to deploy in the field, and most importantly how to have fun! The podcast will also explore what you can do with your gear once deployed.
