FYI: Amatuer Radio 100 years old Dec 13th. 2012

"As Amateur radio operators we know that our hobby is like no other. We have the ability to bridge cultures, both nationally and internationally.

Amateur radio offers opportunities for public service ,technological advancement, and just plain camaraderie. Through the magic of amateur radio there is always an element of mystery

when an amateur radio operator sends out a general CQ call. Who will answer and what foreign country will be their home?

What mutual interests do we share? Through amateur radio, friendships are expanded world wide.

Amateur radio, by and large, is conducted, QSO AFTER QSO,on a high level of mutual respect. This makes many things possible and greatly enhances the benefits of being

an Amateur radio operator.

Amateur radio operators are a very privileged group. We have the ability and the vehicle to not only broaden our minds and enrich our experiences, but through amateur radio we value our differences and in the process....spread international goodwill! "

=====================================

The Challenger II Ultralight I built in 1992.

CLICK HERE : http://www.xcelco.on.ca/~stefanik/challenger.html

Enjoyed building the Challenger II as much as I did flying it.

I sold it and moved on to motorcycles. GL1800 Goldwing.

I have a couple of radio controlled model airplanes, but just not have the time to fly them so my only hobby now that I have time for and find relaxing is Ham Radio.

 

LOVED LISTENING TO BRIAN SHUL.

In this talk at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Vietnam-era attack pilot and retired Air Force major Brian Shul, author of "Sled Driver: Flying the World's Fastest Jet," reveals fascinating details of piloting the SR-71. Using his rare aviation slides and stories as a vehicle, he tells a broader inspired story of hope, overcoming obstacles and daring to dream.
