Surfin’: Pinning the Needle (and Other Radio Parts)


Source: Pinterest

My daughter is into arts and crafts and was an early adapter of Pinterest. She talked about all the arts and crafts stuff on Pinterest, so I assumed that the website leaned in that direction and did not offer much in the way of techy stuff. I learned that my assumption was incorrect when I finally got around to exploring Pinterest.

Pinterest is a pinboard-style photo-sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, and hobbies. Users can browse other pinboards for images, "re-pin" images to their own pinboards, or "like" photos. (Source: Wikipedia)

Go to Pinterest, search on radio, ham radio, amateur radio, AM radio, FM radio, shortwave radio, antenna, QSL, etc. and you will be inundated with hundreds of related images and videos pinned by Pinterest users. Some of the images are unique, some you will recognize, some are off-the-wall, most are worth a look and some are worth exploring further.

So far, I have two Pinterest boards, Radio and Ham Radio, that I am slowly filling with pins and I am following a few other boards of interest. (When you follow another board, new pins on those boards automatically show up at the top of the page after you log in so you don't miss anything.)

Until next time, keep on surfin'!
