Today Jeff Davis KE9V released the remaining episodes of Cornbread Road.
Back in 2010 Jeff KE9V posted this teaser for the series:
Deep in the Heartland a small group of ham radio enthusiasts enjoy an idyllic existence of wide open spaces, no antenna restrictions, low-noise levels, simple living, and good fellowship. But things aren’t exactly as they seem. Unexplained lights in the night sky, radio signals masked from the ether, strange late night visitors to this small farming community…
I listened to Cornbread Road when Jeff rolled it out https://k9zw.wordpress.com/2010/06/21/cornbread-road-jeff-ke9vs-work-a-different-kind-of-ham-radio-podcast/ , and wrote https://k9zw.wordpress.com/2011/09/05/cornbread-road-a-ke9v-audio-amateur-radio-novel-fully-on-line/ when the original 13 episodes were all put online.
I caught the re-release on Jeff KE9V’s Twitter feed – https://twitter.com/ke9v/
As Jeff KE9V likes to evolve his online presence, often taking down projects to make way for his next web efforts, shortly after my promo piece Cornbread Road disappeared until 2013, when Jeff KE9V did a first re-release adding a 14th Epilogue episode.
This time he has said the episodes will remain ready to download until September 22nd 2020.
Jeff KE9V said the epilogue will not be re-issued this time, nor has he mentioned if a new epilogue or any additional episodes will appear.
I wrote about the 14 episode 2013 re-release https://k9zw.wordpress.com/2013/10/04/cornbread-road-audio-series-by-ke9v-returns-with-a-new-epilogue-episode/
Just like my 2011 and 2013 posts, I am not going to spoil any bit of the goodness by giving away the plot. Jeff KE9V did an awesome job recording his story and it is really a treat that he decided to reissue the series.
