100 Watts and a Wire

The intersection of life and amateur radio

What people are saying


"As a broadcaster I've never really been into podcasts but the 100 Watts and a Wire podcast is different.  I love how Christian brings you into his life, ham radio and otherwise.  The community on Facebook is a great resource and a "safe space" for asking questions.  Such a rarity on social media.  I'm proud to call Christian a friend and colleague in both broadcasting and amateur radio."

Don Wilbanks, AE5DW

"Thoughtful and insightful. Explores the human element."

Dave Kasler, KE0OG

"100 Watts and a Wire is more than just a podcast.  You can follow along with Christian's journey through ham radio by listening to the podcast, but it's also a community.  The 100 Watts and a Wire Facebook group is a safe place, especially for beginning and casual hams, to learn from each other."

Neil Rapp, WB9VPG

Host of Ham Talk Live


"Every week, I look forward to another great episode of 100 Watts and a Wire. I love hearing about Christian's ham radio experiences of the past week. His podcast is definitely authentic and real. That's what I love about it. Keep up the great work 'C' Child!"

Tony Valentin, K9ARV

"With a regular HF net, Activity Days and a podcast that blends the spirit of mainstream talk radio with the soul of ragchew, Christian Cudnik has created a true ham radio environment. More than just a hamfest for your ears, 100 Watts and a Wire is a linear amplifier for our whole hobby. Thanks K0STH for keeping it fun."
