Call for Oz

News imageI’m very pleased to announce that Call for Help is returning to Australian television. We were only on there for a short while last year, but the response from down under was phenomenal. They really took to the show.
Watch Andy, Amber, and me on The HOW TO Channel, channel 118 on FOXTEL Digital and Austar Digital starting March 7. And please start sending us your questions. We want to get as many Australian calls on as we can. Fill out the question form today and get ready to Call for Help, Australia!

  4. I’m very glad to hear it. I hope it will keep the show going strong. i have yet to see it though. I can’t afford to watch digital cable here in canada anymore. i’m sitting in tonight watching old TSS shows i taped 2 years ago on VHS while a snowstorm blows outside in the darkness in southern ontario.
    just watched the show with Woz on when he had his scooter things. right around the time Macworld happened and they introduced the new 17″ powerbook. i bought my first mac then. a 15″ powerbook in feb 2003. but i have a 12″ G4 ibook now. the powerbook was too big for me and i just like the ibook more because of it’s battery life and wireless range.
    i’m still enjoying your radios shows in my car thanks to podcasting. thank you for making these available. they add much to my life here.

  5. I am so pleased to see Call For Help returning to Australian TV. TechTV is now gone here in Oz and I was wondering how we would see you again.
    You mentioned on KFI last weekend that a deal was immenant and I am so happy to see the posting today. I have just got home from work and it certainly has bought a smile to my face. Im looking forward to seeing the new Canadian show in March.
    Glad to have you back.

  6. Hi Leo–
    Just a note and a quick question. We have had a great response from the ham radio community to our carriage of your news/commentary podcasts on our amateur news bulletin service heard around the country. Will you be doing in the future, at least one audio news podcast each week?
    Our staff at This Week in Amateur Radio (www.twiar.org) wish you all the best in 2005, and perhaps this will be the year that you get your amateur license!
    Best 73 Leo

  8. I know its been already said in these posts, but any comment on this matter will help. Please bring CFH back to the US. TSS is failing miserably. (No offense to Kev and Sarah!) We need some sanity and tech knowledge brought back! Please post any info on how we in American can help!!

  13. This is terrific news. It is true that Call for Help developed a large following in Australia and I hope the How to Channel broadcasts up to date episodes. Leo’s radio spots are great to listen too but it will be nice having Call for Help back.

  14. I am so happy to hear you are going to be back on in the land in which I was born, but come on, no US takers yet?? Also, in the meantime, why are there no webcams on when Leo is doing his radio show on Sunday, I used to love to stop by as it was going on to see it all happen. Congrats Oz, hopefully we’ll start getting the satalite beam closer to home soon too.
