"Hancock's Half hour"-"Ham radio" (In 3 Parts)

Postby Tape Splicer » Mon Jul 23, 2012 10:15 pm

I have enjoyed the good discussion about DXing in a couple of threads over the last week. The insight from the many points of view and experience has been enlightening.

i came across these "Hancock's half Hour" TV show segments on "YouTube".
All three parts deal with "Ham radio".

I thought that this comedic view of "Ham Radio" might brighten your day. ... Enjoy.

Its been a few weeks since I last popped in.

Those segments by Tony Hancock were wonderful.

Reminds me so much of being a young SWL with a mountain of receivers and a bootleg crystal controlled CW transmitter built from old scavenged TV and radio parts.

APG Your comment had a smile in it ...you're right, It was fun to watch ...
Here is a link to a PDF book titled "The New DXers Handbook" by Bryce K Anderson K7UA. http://dx-code.org/newdxer.pdf (The PDF book can be saved or opened fromthe link). It was published in January 2011. This might be of some use for anyone who is new to Dxing.
