Friday Funnies

 Can you hear me now?
Grenville had some fun with this vintage piece at a recent ham radio flea market. (It didn't have anything to do with ham radio, but was a unique find for a photo opp.)

Enjoy Your Weekend, Everyone
We're in PA to see family, friends & a hot air balloon festival.
Hope you have some fun in your plans too.

I can't tell you how many times in my life I have said breaker 1-9 anyone out there? I laughed at the can you hear me now. It's important that these Ham radios be kept alive and working because if anything ever happens to the internet Heaven Help Us we're going to need these radios and people who know how to use them

I don't know a thing about ham radios, but it looks like you could signal Mars with that contraption.

My brother's been selling some of his old radio and CB gear recently, some of it completely obsolete, but has had no trouble shifting it.

All he needs is a black circle around one eye. Then he would look like the cute little dog on the old RCA Victor ads.

Beatrice, Grenville's pose reminds me of both my and my wife's selective hearing issue. I just don't hear things I don't want to hear...and the same is true for her when it comes to me. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
