Hackaday Podcast Ep 103: Antennas for everybody, a watch product of chains, magical eye-tubes and somewhat Google bashing

Hackaday editors Mike Szczys and Elliot Williams discuss the week’s biggest hacks. Antennas are not rocket science, so this week we really enjoyed a video demystifying antenna designs and a project that made the easiest way to optimize antennas on cheap radio modules. Google is in the news this week with the end of Project Loon and an uproar with the volunteer maintainers who have made sure the Chromium browser is in the Linux repos for years. Elliot is a fan of magical eye tubes and crazy musical instruments, while Mike is overjoyed for a chain-based watch display. We wrap up the episode which is about the Concorde and the math behind the cable mechanisms.
