The World of Amateur Radio in 16mm

It is amazing how little the basics have changed. Other than technology improvements the basic Ham radio operation basics remain the same. Activities like field day, disaster services, community service and event communications are just a few of the activities still being performed. This is an interesting old 16mm film produced by professionals like Dick Van Dyke and is well worth a watch!

If you noticed the call sign for the host, he is still active as you can see on his W6AQ QRZ page ! Watch this and enjoy the look back, and think about how some things do not change at all. I just noticed the Associate Producer was Bill Pasternak WA6ITF, a name familiar to a lot of Hams! And I might add, if you can visit the link above at QRZ for W6AQ, there is a lot of history on his page. Including info on what famous person had call sign KB2GSD?
