Video Me


This was totally unexpected!

While staffing our booth at Hamvention three weeks ago, a video crew from an online ham radio news website interviewed some of my peeps and the video from those interviews came online earlier this week.

Although I was not interviewed, I appear in some of the 51 minutes of video footage standing behind the person being interviewed. (If I knew I was being videotaped, I would have made an effort to increase my presence.)

You can watch all 51 minutes of video to see my appearances, but if you are not interested in the technologies being discussed, it might be boring. So to save you the trouble, I logged the times of my appearances and you can fast-forward to those times to see me.

Look for me in the polka dot dress standing behind the fellow being interviewed at time marks 3:16, 10:40, 16:00, 19:00, and 20:32. Later, I appear wearing my black and white print sheath at time mark 43:40. The last two (20:32 and 43:40) are probably the best of the bunch.

All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up.

  1. you look very nice in the video Stana. Very genetic I would say!

    1. I like "genetic" ... thank-you, Joanna!

  2. Dear Stana,

    Thank You for sharing. It's lovely to see you in the video. HAM operators in the video seemed very nice and very bright. I'm not surprised that you have gotten generally very good support from them vis-à-vis your wonderful feminine presentation.



    1. My ham peeps are the best, Sheila.

  3. Another reason to have Dayton on my bucket list. I've got a bunch of friends that go every year, but I haven't make it yet. Are you there every year?

    It would have been nice to be there to meet you and Bruce Perens (only HAM geeks would know who he is).

    1. I have been going almost every year for the past 35 years, but only the past 5 years en femme.

  4. Hi Stana, nice to see you on video, eventually!
    It's a pity that they did not interview you, instead of those boring guys.

  5. How cool! You look very comfortable in your own skin!

  6. Stana great video and to "see" you live was great. I looked into HackRF device, looks interesting. Don't know if I would use one if I made a purchase. Ham radio has come a long way since I first started in 1956 with a Heathkit AT-1 transmitter and a Hallicrafters S-38 receiver. The first "digital" stuff was mechanical a surplus WWII Teletype Model 15 and a TU called "The Twin City TU", by Byron Kretzman (W2JTP). Byron was residing in the twin cities Minnesota then and was working on a microwave radio system for the Minnesota Highway Department. The project was to expensive and Bryon resigned and went back east.
