Ham Nation Celebrates 200 Episodes

by Steven Hicks, W5NLR

Those of you who have never seen the weekly program called HAM NATION, you are really missing a great show about amateur radio.  Ham Nation celebrates EPISODE 200 on June 10, 2015.

Ham Nation is a 60 minute, live video program that can be seen by going to  www.twit.tv/hn  TWIT TV stands for “This Week in Technology”.  It’s not a BROADCAST, it’s a NETCAST;  it’s not on cable or satellite.  Really, there are no time constraints with a live netcast, so sometimes it becomes a 75 minute, 90 minute or even longer show!  AND there is a live chatroom, so you interact with the show host, ask questions or even help to answer questions.imagesMJB4P160

Ham Nation is professionally produced, in HIGH DEFINITION and it airs live every Wednesday night at 8:00 p.m.  It is technical, instructional, informative and also, quite entertaining at times.

The hosts of the show are: Bob Heil (K9EID), George Thomas (W5JDX), Gordon West (WB6NOA), Dale Puckett (K0HYD) and Don Wilbanks (AE5DW).  Don Wilbanks is a professional broadcaster, originally from Oklahoma, who now lives and broadcasts from Picayune, Mississippi.  If the name Don Wilbanks sounds familiar, it’s because he is the voice behind the famous Amateur Radio Newsline.

Although Ham Nation records live every Wednesday night at 8:00 p.m., it is available for replay any time after that on TWIT TV.  So, you haven’t missed anything but you are now about 200 shows behind–so you have a lot of catching up to do.  TWIT TV is located in Petaluma, California and has many technology shows to choose from.  The productions are amazing!

You can watch or listen to Ham Nation on TWIT TV online OR, If you have a Roku Box, Apple TV, or a Smart TV, you can watch Ham Nation in High Definition on your HDTV.  I have a Roku box, so that’s how I watch Ham Nation.  I simply added the TWIT TV app which is free from the Roku app store.

There are currently 200 archived episodes of Ham Nation beginning with Episode 1 which “aired” on May 25, 2011.

Every Wednesday night at 8:00 p.m., I am sitting in front of my TV or computer watching Ham Nation LIVE–I wouldn’t miss it!
