My lovely wife Marianne, gifted me with an Amazon Kindle for Christmas. I love to read; and if I have free time and I'm not on the radio, then that's probably what I am doing.
"Good for you!" you may be thinking, "But what does this have to do with Amateur Radio?"
Everything!, As I found out much to my delight! I can e-mail copies of the K9YA Telegraph and WorldRadio Online to my Kindle; and now I can take them everywhere! I loved WorldRadio and I love the K9YA Telegraph; but I must admit that I find it a pain to have to read them while sitting behind the computer (of which I rarely get to use anymore, sharing it with my wife and two "tweens"). Even with a laptop or netbook, it's a bit of a bother. The Kindle makes it a pleasure! I can now take them anywhere with me, even to "the Library".
Also, since my Kindle is WiFi compatible I can keep up with the latest blogs and such through Google. It's not as good as having a Netbook in that regard; but it's a nice feature to have.
I have already downloaded a free sample of "Three Hundred Zeroes" the book by Dennis Blanchard. Since this involves his QRP experiences on the Appalachian Trail, I am seriously thinking of purchasing the Kindle version.
Usual disclaimer - I don't work for Kindle or Amazon.com - I am just very happy with my Christmas gift (that it's electronic and gadgety has nothing to do with it! wink, wink, nudge, nudge!).
