Vintage ARRL ham radio movie. Converted from 16mm film to video tape many years ago, and now from that ancient VHS to digital. Enjoy the flickering screen, and especially the funky organ music backgrounds! heavy focus on Morse code, which of course is no longer a requirement.
From the desk of Russ, KH6JRM:
Many thanks to KF5OEF for finding this little gem. This vintage film takes me back to the days of my old HW-101, the D-104 mike, and the trusty 40 meter dipole strung between two pine trees near the old sugar plantation in Honokaa (along the Hamakua Coast of Hawaii Island). When I worked cw (which was most of the time), I used an old J-38 key (which I still have). Things seemed simplier and more civil in those days 36 years ago. How time flies. Amateur Radio is still fun, despite the few obnoxious operators I run into on 75 and 20 meters. Thanks for the memories! Aloha de Russ, KH6JRM.
