What does a resistor have to do with a stick?

Commonly the size of a grain of rice with pretty colours, a resistor is a regular item in many electrical devices. This week in Foundations of Amateur Radio I take a look at how ice-cubes, electrons, sticks and resistors describe what is going on inside an electrical circuit without once using a joule, a coulomb or more familiar terms like Volt, Ampere and Ohm.

Amateur Radio is a fascinating hobby that covers many aspects of life. Foundations of Amateur Radio is a weekly podcast that looks into this exciting field that throws up new challenges for beginners and old hands alike.

You can listen to this weekly podcast on-air, on-line or on-demand. Check out the website at http://podcasts.itmaze.com.au/, subscribe via iTunes by searching for my callsign, VK6FLAB, or click the link to download your very own copy of this week's episode.
