TWIAR Turns 15 – Podcasts & Repeater Broadcasts for 780 Issues!

Twiar Turns 15

 This Week in Amateur Radio starts its 15th year, having finished 780 audio issues!

 Think of it, 780 audio-casts roughly 1 to 1-1/2 hours each over a 15 year period!

 Here is TWIAR’s Press Release:

This Week in Amateur Radio Begins 15th Year
of Service To The Amateur Radio Community

With this issue of This Week in Amateur Radio
And This Week in Amateur Radio Headline News,
edition 780, we begin and celebrate our 15th
year of service to the amateur radio community.

The bulletin service has changed greatly over
the years, and certainly would not have made it
this far without the loyalty and dedication of
our world wide all volunteer staff.

We’ve come a long way in the past fifteen years.
From the old analog days of open reel tape (I miss
those old Revox machines) to early telephone quality
audio on satellite subcarriers, to today’s all digital
editing and distribution on the Internet.

Over the years, many folks both hams and non-hams
have graced the airwaves of This Week in Amateur Radio.

I would like to take this opportunity to list here,
all of our current staff, and what contribution they
make each week. It takes over sixty man-hours of time
to complete production on each of the programs.

Here, in no particular order, are the people that make
This Week in Amateur Radio, This Week in Amateur Radio
Headline News, and This Week in Amateur Radio International
possible. As we begin our fiftieth year:

Our Internet team:

Greg Williams K4HSM (web site design & maintenance)
Dale Sargent N0WKF (web site audio engineer)
Fred Moses W8FSM (web site hosting and server maintenance)
Al Waller (QSL.NET) (back up server hosting)
Jay Silvio, N9WMU Staff artist

    Greg K4HSM just sent around:

    And with a new year comes a new site design.

    I’ve removed some of the content from the former site and will be adding new content over the next several weeks.

    Some of the pages will be “Coming Soon” for now, but I will work on them as I have time.

    Any broken links or problems with the site, please email
