I spent the afternoon searching Google for entertaining ham radio videos. The following videos are the ones I found worth posting here. 


Radio Hams, (1939) b/w narrated. “A Pete Smith Specialty” film short. (Comment: At minute 3 in the video “Teller, Alaska” is narrated. Teller, Alaska is a nostalgic memory for me. I enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard in 1974 after I quit high school in the last month of my senior year. I spent one year (1974-75) at the U.S. Coast Guard LORAN Station Port Clarence, near the Bering Strait, North of Teller, Alaska. I got my G.E.D. from Teller School.) I visited an Eskimo hunting camp from south of Port Clarence on one occasion.

RCA Presents “Radio at War” – 1944. b/w narrated.

    What does any of this have to do with Flex Signature Series radios or SmartSDR software?

    Don, you were certainly one busy guy to find and bookmark all these videos.   Now I'm going to have to spend hours looking at them....my interest is way up and band conditions at the moment are lacking.    Best 73, Jim

    It is all part of ham radio. Everyone needs to take a break and watch funny videos about ham radio so they don't take themselves too serious. Like you for example. Otherwise, they start griping at everyone who for the least little thing that does no harm to anyone or anything. Let us just keep enjoying ham radio. Okay? Thank you.

    I was bored! I'm waiting for my VA pension to get direct deposited into my bank account tomorrow so I can purchase my FLEX 1500 accessories to get my radio on the air.

    There are other forums more attuned to this sort of thing. eHam or QRZ, perhaps. Posts like this just fill email with trash. I was irritated by your original post but angry with your reply. Take your patronizing attitude and shove it up your mast.

    Thanks Don, I enjoyed it and I hope you find more. A little levity never hurt anyone.
