Yeah, we do go on around here. Sometimes it might be hard to suss out the real from the foolin' around, but what fun is real if you can't fool around a little in the bargain? Started with Jess & Jeff giving us us a real boost when they bought a couple of our Soldering Iron Mike Tees – but wait there's more – and then they snapped this super snap that so happened to suit our promotional purposes to, yeah, a Tee. Come on. Talk about real. Real hams, real engineers, real makers, real good friends, what fun!
Sorry no Food Court, but you know, we could use a uniformed Ham Radio Mall Cop for crowd control. Stay tuned!
Gotta tell ya Ladies and Gentlemen, this level of radio play is several orders of magnitude above our pension grade, but we're delighted to have Airedale Wireless Works helping to underwrite Dashtoons' very popular and pretty new Friends of The Short Wave page. And to think, long ago our closest degree of separation from the Royal Family was a marvelous little Centurion Tank with real rubber treads, made in England by Dinky Toys when Harold Macmillan was at 10 Downing. Mind you, we've signed a lot documents promising not to chatter too much about the underwriters of our underwriters, so please understand if we say no more. But of course we shan't, nudge-nudge, wink-wink.
Fall in DXer's! Check out Dashtoons' swell NEW PAGE, focusing like a beady little Magic Eye on everbody's favorite Friendly Frequencies. There's something about Autumn Short Wave that feels foreboding, you know, in a good way - like a campfire ghost story, only with radios. Wooooo! Number Station gonna get you! Click here and join the fun.
Jersey Boy Wonder
Our second op in the FOSW spotlight is a most familiar name and call in monitoring and amateur radio circles. His editorial and authorial work has been widely published in SWL and ham media, including QST and CQ magazines. Count on Skip N2EI for what's what in playin' radio!
His classic Radio Monitoring, The How-To Guide is now available as a free download at North American Shortwave Association's website.
Plus aside from all those aetherial pursuits, Thomas Arey is also Senior Adjunct Lecturer in Philosophy and Comparative Religion at Burlington County College in the Garden State. Cap'n Skip was U.S.Army sky pilot too!
We're proud to count this thoughtful gentleman and very good sport among our Dash!Chums.
Well, if we're too late to Elmer poor Jason, there's still time to reach out to you ham youngsters with a wild, free and big fun Maker Project on a whole new Dashtoons page created to WOW your kind of whippersnapper.
Introducing HamYoot – the smart internet tree fort reserved for Future Amateurs of Today In Step With Tomorrow! We speak your language, we groove your music, we read you like a Raspberry Pi hacked into an Altoid tin with Arduinos on top.
Thing is, for the time being, pipe down about all that kooky stuff. It makes Geezers so nervous they gnaw their cardigan sweaters and wear oatmeal for breakfast. Your time will come. For now, click here and keep busy with HamYoot!
Dash!Chums, thanks for putting us on on the map.
K1NSS Custom QSL and Dashtoons are going global thanks to your support. To our customers and fans, a big thank you for rocking our world.
You're invited to step back into YL QSL history in our new online gallery.
We're a long way from hanging the whole shootin' match, and we're a little short on Chablis and cheese and crackers for the opening, but we do offer a some curious, cool and sweetly retro YL cards for your appreciation.

Short Wave, Long Term.
Calling all Friends of the Short Waves!
We're spreading the word about Ears To Our World, a charity founded by Dash!Chum Thomas Witherspoon, K4SWL.
ETOW distributes wind-up radios to isolated villages around the world, an effort inspired by the beguiling radio magic about which we're all mad as hatters.
Here at Dashtoons, we kid radio because we love radio, make no mistake about that. So smitten, we support Ears To Our World as a vital 21st century force for public education and personal liberation. Plain and simple, radio is all about becoming airborne – that's what it was to us and remains so in this digital age, especially in remote and developing areas beyond the internet, cell phones and electric power.
