The first hour will start with the 10 minute DVD and cover the proper use of microphone, adjusting transmitter EQ, performance demonstrations, etc.

The second hour will start with a different DVD – about 8 minutes and then spend time doing live demonstrations on improving receiving audio set ups and covering some of the actual science of Audio…   How it affects everything about Amateur Radio operations.

About Bob Heil (source Wikipedia)

Bob Heil (October 5, 1940) is an American sound and radio engineer most well known for creating the template for modern rock sound systems. He founded the company Heil Sound in 1966, which went on to create unique touring sound systems for bands such as The Grateful Dead and The Who. He invented the Heil Talk Box in 1973, which was frequently used by musicians such as Peter FramptonJoe Walsh and Richie Sambora, and is still in use today.

Heil has been an innovator in the field of amateur radio, manufacturing microphones and satellite dishes for broadcasters and live sound engineers. In the late 1980s Heil Sound became one of the first American companies to create and install Home Theaters, and Heil has lectured at major electronic conventions and taught classes at various institutions.

He has won multiple awards and honors, and in 2007 he became the first manufacturer to be invited to exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

It’s been Great!

Bronte_bassFor those great Customers I have had the pleasure of meeting and serving over the last 11+ years here at Radioworld, Thanks!

I’m moving on so I can pursue my love of music and to build a business that focusses on the restoration and upgrading of classic guitar amplifiers and accessories.

It’s been fun to help Radioworld to grow and evolve over the years. And the people… both the Radioworld team and the people who come to us  looking for products and advice, have made it great.

All the best to you, and I hope that Radioworld will continue to be your favourite go-to store for tech products into the future.
