Legendary live sound pioneer and ham radio expert, Bob Heil, is set to premier a new netcast show on Leo Laporte’s TwiT.tv network. Called “HamNation,” it will focus on equipment, applications, tips and general information for the ham radio enthusiast. For those who know Bob Heil, it won’t be any surprise that his first guest will be rock star, friend, and avid amateur radio operator, Joe Walsh, who also wrote the theme music.

Heil explains, “I have been a fan of Leo Laporte’s for a long time and recently appeared on his 'Triangulation 8' show. We had a blast, and much to my delight, he asked me to develop a show for and about ham radio. Since the early 1900s much of the ham radio operator’s focus has been building and experimenting with their equipment. Many of today’s radios are computer controlled, thus attracting new users to the hobby. Even in this day of instant Internet communications, ham radio434256299912269 is still the premier communication link whether it’s for storm chasers or talking to your friends around the globe. This new TWiT.tv show will bring the existing and new users together.”

The show launches on May 24 at 8PM CDT at http://live.twit.tv/.
