Radio Tidbits

Coming early 2024

Creator / Producer

At present this whole thing is a one man show. I’m the creator, producer, puppeteer, voice actor, lighting, cameraman, smoke machine operator, wardrobe, set designer, writer, researcher, 3 year HAM opeartor, and only Radio Tidbit investor. I’ve never done puppeteering or voice acting before for an audience. My primary call sign is VE3WWJ. My secondary call sign is VA3GMG and is where Dit makes his contacts from. This show is my hobby that allows me to hang out and destress with the boys at the lake.

The Radio Tidbits boys look up to “Lord Callum – The DXCommander”. (callsign M0MCX). He is a HAM operator and founder of DXCommander Antenna Systems. He is not a show sponsor or endorses it and doesn’t know we exist. Lord Callum is a generous man who has helped thousands get their footing into the hobby. He’s earned a lot of respect. The Radio Tidbit boys share this respect for him… perhaps a little too much.


Two old friends are camping at Pickle Lake Ontario Canada where “Dit” introduces his buddy “Dah” to the world of radio. The boys rag chew all sorts of topics that will help Dah focus his radio interests. What do you think Dah will decide? This season, our target audience is someone new, wanting to know where to begin to receive and maybe even transmit radio signals. Don’t take notes to keep your hands free for your hot chocolate. No topic will be complete or in depth. Your only assisgnment is to answer one question at the end of the season: “Do you want to learn more?”

Tidbit: “dit” and “dah” is how you say morse code out loud with your voice. More Info
