ICQPodcast discusses K1JT, VOA, and RSGB

I once again joined the ICQPodcast¬*panel for episode 209. We discussed the
following:

SSB/CW Filter Modules
K1JT is Amateur of the Year
Implosions Removes 48 Surplus VOA towers
RSGB Announces New General Manager
ARRL Establishes Youth Nets Web Page
Sisters called to White House
DSTAR Satellite in Space


I talked a little bit about the D-STAR satellite in a previous post. Of the
other topics, the dynamiting of the VOA towers and the changeover at the
RSGB (and more importantly for U.S. amateurs at the ARRL) are the most
interesting.

On the ICQPodcast, Marin, W9ICQ/M1MRB said that watching the demolition
video (see below) nearly brought him to tears. I wasnt quite so affected,
but I do find it sad that the antennas werent being used anymore and that
there were no plans to use them in the future. Its just another indication
of the decline of shortwave broadcasting. At least they wont be putting up
an apartment complex or a shopping mall; the land is slated to be a
wildlife preserve.

I dont have much to say about the new RSGB CEO, but what I find interesting
is that both the RSGB and the ARRL are gaining new CEOs at the same time. I
recently listened to the QSO Today interview of NY2RF, the ARRLs new CEO,
and he certainly said all the right things. The times they are achangin
