Not every clever designer does this sort of mentoring! George N2APB and Joe N2CX are really putting something back in for all of us! I’ve on-and-off followed this project through the announcements at the NUE-PSK Yahoo Group list, and hadn’t realized what a wonderful job this team was doing!

Every other Tuesday evening at 8pm Eastern (0100z), N2APB and N2CX co-host a live audio conferencing session called “Chat With The Designers”. Often joined by designers of other projects as well, we gather around this technical watering hole to discuss various topics that are of interest to us all. Whether you seek information about your latest project on the bench or just wish to listen in on the various designers discussing some new chip or product/kit solution they are currently working on, this is the place to be.

For a little more than an hour, or as long as the discussion is lively, N2APB and N2CX run the session in “net control”-like fashion, guiding the discussion and passing the mic in an orderly way among those wishing to contribute. Augmented by a very useful “text chat window” at the bottom of the screen, everyone is able to post text comments, links and other information when the urge strikes. We record the audio from each session, as well as save the text chat window great reference later on.

They also run a Yahoo Group dedicated to the project:

This Yahoo Group is the forum for email discussion happening in between our bi-weekly Tuesday evening Teamspeak sessions of “Chat With The Designers” … the live, online and interactive weekly magazine for hams, homebrewers, homebrewers and experimenters.

We have a web page archive of all previous weekly sessions (42 so far!), and each session has a “white board” page containing notes, diagrams and photos that supplemented the discussion topic of that session. Additionally, the sessions are recorded and the PODCASTS are made available there on the web page for each session. You can access the CWTD session archives and podcasts at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/43021514/CWTD/TeamspeakChat.html

We use this CWTD Yahoo Group as an email forum for continued discussion of the various Teamspeak topics in an offline manner, including technical elaborations, suggestions for future topics and general notification of upcoming session material.

Thanks for being with us!
