|This Week in Amateur Radio
Welcome to the new server!
Friends of TWIAR:
We are in the process of migrating to a new server and the DNS transfer is complete (for your internet provider). The new server will allow us to put up a few new features that we hope to employ soon.
Thanks for your continued support and patronage!
TWIAR Fund Support
This Week in Amateur Radio relies on funding from our listeners in order to continue. Proceeds go strictly towards the production of TWIAR and to upgrade equipment used to produce the program. Much of the program's production comes out-of-pocket, but generous donations help to ensure our continued growth in the amateur radio community.
In short, you keep us on the air!
As the year comes to a close we are working hard to continue to provide you with the latest up-to-the-minute news in all things amateur radio. Please help us to help you by donating today! Click on the "Support Us" link at the top to find out how you can help.
The host for our web site is through a generous grant from FM Media. Please show your appreciation and visit them today for all of your internet business needs.
What do you think of our new site, folks?
Share your opinions with us!
TWIAR (always) looking for on-the-air talent!
One attribute we are never short of is the the need for on-the-air talent. You need not be a ham radio operator to apply. Previous broadcast experience is helpful but not required.
If you have always wanted to be a radio newscaster, why not come on board with This Week in Amateur Radio?
All you need is a desire to be on the air, a commitment to a once every two or three week rotation with other anchors on a Friday night/Saturday morning schedule, a PC, or Mac, equipped with a sound card and a decent studio microphone.
You will need to be proficient in the use of sound recording and editing software of your choice. Most of our anchors use Adobe Audition or Cool Edit. However you may use Sound Forge, WaveLab, Audacity, etc.
You also need have an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client and know how to transfer files from your computer to our server. Obviously a broadband internet connection is a must have.
TWIAR can supply you with software if needed (PC Only). So, if you always wanted to be "on the air", you can do it with This Week in Amateur Radio!
Our programs are heard on WBCQ Shortwave (7.415mHz) via satellite, amateur radio repeaters, podcast, and more!
Send an e-mail to our Producer/Technical Director, George Bowen, W2XBS today. Please include your name, call sign (if any), location, and most important, a good daytime/evening telephone number so we can contact you directly with details.
We hope to hear from you soon!
