Shortwave Listening Today– Bill W2XOY W Page 6 - page 13 / 14





13 / 14

Well, we have all heard of the saying “Kitten on the keys” but this is a new twist, “ Puppy on the ‘Puter.”

If you can’t see what this cute little pup is doing on top of the computer, feel free to zoom in for a better view.

Just think how the poor guy that took this picture felt, after this unexpected surprise.

If you have pets, electronic equipment is always at risk from chewing, biting & pulling on wires so use your head and take necessary precautions.

Veteran ABC Radio Networks commentator Paul Harvey a few weeks ago, offered some kind words for Ham Radio. The mention was the second item on "page four" of his March 19, Paul Harvey Noon News and Comment program.

"America's quiet warriors are the legion of ham radio operators, 700,000 of them, who are always at ready for backup duty in emergencies--amateur, unpaid, uncelebrated, civilian radio operators, during and after floods and fires and tornadoes," Harvey said. "After the 9/11 attacks, hams were indispensable in reuniting friends and families. Most recently it was they who expedited the search for debris after the disaster to the space shuttle Columbia, and right now, at this moment, they are involved in homeland security to a greater degree than you would want me to make public."

The commentary's enigmatic and mysterious final sentence--typical of Harvey's habit of leaving his listeners hanging-- apparently refers to the fact that many Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) and Radio Amateur Emergency Service (RACES) teams have ramped up their alert status as hostilities get under way in the Middle East.
