Ham Radio show - ¨The Ham Sandwich¨ 4  - Yaesu FRG-7 Special.

It is now February , the start of the year (what happened to January ?) and Steve and Greg are back again with another ¨The Ham Sandwich¨ show.
Todays show is a special show that salutes a classic communications receiver from the 1970's - the Yaesu FRG-7.

What caused this receiver to become a modern collectible which still has a large fan following some 40 years after it was released ?

Watch todays Yaesu FRG-7 special and find out why Steve and Greg like this particular receiver so much so that they have owned more than 1 each :-)

Sneak Peek at Show number 4.

Sneak Peek at Show number 4.

Now that it is 2016 Steve and I will be starting the year off with a special show.
Show number 4 will be about the all time classic shortwave communications receiver , the Yaesu FRG-7.

Why did this radio made in the 1970's turn into a collectible ?
What is special about the design that was uncommon at the time ?
What should we look for when we want to buy one ?
and What should we do when we get it home ?

These questions and many more will be answered in show number 4 on 'The Ham Sandwich' - The Yaesu FRG-7 special.

We hope you will stick around for a serving of that one :-)

A suggestion made by Bobby.

A suggestion made by Bobby Tectalabyss -
- is that we post the three existing 'The Ham Sandwich' shows onto the new channel.

What a great idea :-)
Thanks Bobby.

A new Youtube channel.

To help ¨The Ham Sandwich¨ show get noticed quickly I have been putting the show videos on my own personal YouTube channel.

I admit that we used my existing subscriber base to get the show noticed by viewers that we knew already had an interest in Amateur Radio.

Now that we have made it into 2016 , and the show has gained some traction of its own , we now have made a YouTube channel purely for ¨The Ham Sandwich¨ shows.

You can find it here -

¨The Ham Sandwich¨ on YOUTUBE

Even if you have subscribed to the YouTube channel HamAndShortwave you MUST subscribe to the new channel if you wish to get automatic updates through the YouTube notification system , when new shows are added.

Alternatively you can subscribe or bookmark this Blog and when new shows are added , they will show up here too.

Pretty neat huh ? :-)
