On Thursday, April 3 at 5pm on KMUD, The SHARC Report will feature an interview with Southern Humboldt resident Frank Letton recorded on location at his high-performance Ham radio station perched on a mountaintop near his home in Whale Gulch. Frank competes against Hams all over the world using Morse code and only 5 watts of of transmitter power. Using his well-honed operating skills, top-notch radios and finely tuned, hand-made, high-gain antennas, Frank consistently scores among the very best in the nation in Ham radio contests. Tune in to learn more about Ham radio as a competitive sport this Thursday at 5pm, and listen to The SHARC Report, a program presented by the Southern Humboldt Amateur Radio Club, on the first Thursday of every month at 5pm on KMUD.

I recorded this edition of The SHARC Report at the club’s holiday pot-luck get together. I hoped to get a few candid interviews with the jovial ambiance of a party in the background. I think it worked out pretty well, perhaps one of the best episodes to date.

I really enjoy audio engineering, even more than I enjoy hosting the show. This approach presented certain challenges from an engineering perspective, and I had to conduct the interviews spontaneously while mingling at a party. I’m really pleased that the show came out sounding pretty good.  I hope you enjoy it!
