I've listened since the old days with Cale, and this podcast is always the first thing I listen to as soon as it comes out. Glad to hear Jeremy back on more consistently, and the dynamic with all 4 of the guys is great! Keep up the good work! You probably have no idea how many of us are struggling during these challenging days, and listening to this is like hanging out with friends we don't get to see much anymore.... makes my day better.

Hey George - for your alt-azimuth satellite tracker, look into using a surveyor tripod. They are very sturdy, have a relatively large flat head with a 5/8" mounting screw. If aluminum, they are fairly light. You can find them at Amazon starting about $75. I use one for a barn-door tracker for night starscapes. I love the podcast and look forward to the new episodes. 73!
Many thanks for your fine podcast. As a relatively new Ham the hobby has reacquainted me with my fondness and interest in electronics. Having had a ten year career in the 80s (metrology) and having stepped away from electronics since then, I am enjoying rediscovering the field. I feel lucky to have the benefit of following your leads down the many rabbit holes you point out. Your show, team, sponsors, guests and show notes are very much appreciated. All the best.
I truly love my Fluke 101 meter, and at $42 it's a steal. However... I wish I'd popped for the $82 Fluke 106. Much the same meter, but with a 10 amp ammeter capability. Yeah, it is almost double, but for tracking down a phantom load on my car's battery, it would be worth it. (tired of using a shunt resistor and measuring the voltage drop...)
The Icom 705 and a PackTenna antenna make wonderful gifts. For the Ham that has everything the NanoVNA ans NanoSA are also under a $100
Very interested in Satellite Tracker. Can’t find name and call you mentioned? Was it KM4WUM? Looking for more details especially on the brand name and model for Pan and tilt motor?
