Welcome to the Ham Nation D-STAR After Show Net!

Ham Nation is a net cast recorded live, biweekly, on Wednesday nights at 9 PM Eastern / 6 PM Pacific (0100 UTC DST.  0200 UTC standard) on the Ham Radio Crash Course channel.

The show is about the excitement and importance of ham radio – from tossing a antenna wire in a tree allowing you to talk to the world, to the importance of ham radio operators in times of disaster.  They cover topics that will interest both non-hams and Extras alike.  It will keep you glued to your screen.

Ham Nation is hosted by:

Josh Nass – KI6NAZ
Gordon West – WB6NOA
Joe Eisenberg – K0NEB
Don Wilbanks – AE5DW
Amanda Alden – K1DDN
Valerie Hotzfeld – NV9L
Randy Hall – K7AGE
Dr. Tamitha Skov – WX6SWW

Once the show starts recording, it’s posed to the HRCC channel.  Any part of the show can be replayed or restarted from the beginning – even while the show is being recorded.  Past episodes are available from the Ham Nation playlist.  Chatroom is available when the show is recording live and is integrated on the same page as the live stream.  Subscribing to the HRCC channel on a mobile device will notify when the channel is recording live.

Ham Nation first aired on the TWiT network from May 24, 2011 – December 31, 2020.  Shows and show notes are archived on the TWiT site and linked under “Old TWiT HN Links.”  On January 6, 2021 the show started on the Ham Radio Crash Course channel.
