When I was very young, maybe seven or eight, I received a flashlight as a gift.

Almost immediately I learned about the speed of light and the enormous distance it would travel in a year. Just before bedtime one night, I went into the backyard with my new flashlight and turned it upward into the black sky.

As I turned it on and off, I imagined that somewhere far away, an intelligent being would detect the light from my flashlight. I had transformed my flashlight into a time and distance machine.

To me, this is the essence of radio.
