We selected AA7EE for the first our playfully earnest Friends of the Short Waves series of public service messages to promote the higher frequencies and those who make 'em all the more worthwhile. Oddly enough, Dave is the guy behind DAVE RICHARDS AA7EE - a terrific Wordpress blog, much of it electronic maker-oriented with the accent on short wave and ham radio supplemented with hands-on technical and workbench details. He takes great pictures of what he makes and his craftsmanship is, I gotta tell ya ladies and gentlemen, Handbook pretty.
If plug-in coils and Velvet Verniers are your cuppa radio, click here for the good stuff.
Well, if we're too late to Elmer poor Jason, there's still time to reach out to you ham youngsters with a wild, free and big fun Maker Project on a whole new Dashtoons page created to WOW your kind of whippersnapper.
Introducing HamYoot – the smart internet tree fort reserved for Future Amateurs of Today In Step With Tomorrow! We speak your language, we groove your music, we read you like a Raspberry Pi hacked into an Altoid tin with Arduinos on top.
Thing is, for the time being, pipe down about all that kooky stuff. It makes Geezers so nervous they gnaw their cardigan sweaters and wear oatmeal for breakfast. Your time will come. For now, click here and keep busy with HamYoot!
Dash!Chums, thanks for putting us on on the map.
K1NSS Custom QSL and Dashtoons are going global thanks to your support. To our customers and fans, a big thank you for rocking our world.
You're invited to step back into YL QSL history in our new online gallery.
We're a long way from hanging the whole shootin' match, and we're a little short on Chablis and cheese and crackers for the opening, but we do offer a some curious, cool and sweetly retro YL cards for your appreciation.

Short Wave, Long Term.
Calling all Friends of the Short Waves!
We're spreading the word about Ears To Our World, a charity founded by Dash!Chum Thomas Witherspoon, K4SWL.
ETOW distributes wind-up radios to isolated villages around the world, an effort inspired by the beguiling radio magic about which we're all mad as hatters.
Here at Dashtoons, we kid radio because we love radio, make no mistake about that. So smitten, we support Ears To Our World as a vital 21st century force for public education and personal liberation. Plain and simple, radio is all about becoming airborne – that's what it was to us and remains so in this digital age, especially in remote and developing areas beyond the internet, cell phones and electric power.
