    Greatest challenge facing amateur radio now: bad advice and negative
    comments from Facebook Hams. Students are not nearly as hands on as they
    used to be.

    Excited most by: Kerry: Reinvigorating and energizing the club after
    lockdown. Michael: we hams keep inventing real cool stuff like FT-8, FT-4, APRS.

    Advice to new or returning hams: join your local club. All of the radio
    you learned in the past, still applies. Tap the educational resources of multiple sources. The RSS Feed for all audio content from QSO today is available from here.
