A.M. explosion on 80 meters last night!

Seems quarantine is causing a lot of hams to dust off their old boat anchors!

Great ragchew on a.m. last night. The quality of the voice signals (no SSB required to hear these) was broadcast quality on most stations. No surprise, a couple of these guys were retired broadcast station engineers!

I heard a Johnson Viking mentioned, they were actually discussing a way to tear apart old car a.m. stereo radios, add them to a circuit, and using an SDR somehow to be able to broadcast old tube gear in a.m. stereo!

One elder claimed this was sacrilege.

There was a young guy, apparently a tech wizard, who pissed off the old farts at QRZ and got himself banned! 🤣

Another old guy cut in and offered to use his clout to get the young dude reinstated. Apparently "sniffmyballs" as a username didn't go over well.

Then I got "Art Bell Somewhere in Time" on a.m., about a supposed alert at Cheyenne Mountain back in the 90's.

It was a great night in radioland!

"Shiny happy people holding hands"

Back to a happier time.

Kate Pierson of the B-52's with R.E.M..

I like this version better than the one that made it onto record.

1919 Influenza Blues

Essie Jenkins








"It was nineteen hundred and nineteen
Men and women were dying
With the stuff that the doctor called the flu
People were dying everywhere
Death was creepin' all through the air
And the groans of the rich sure was sad

Well it was God's almighty plan
He was judging this old land
North and south, east and west
It can be seen
It killed the rich, killed the poor
It's gonna kill just a little more
If you don't turn away from the shame"

Temporary mass graves coming to NYC


"Soon we'll start 'temporary interment'. This likely will be done by using a NYC park for burials (yes you read that right). Trenches will be dug for 10 caskets in a line," Levine wrote on Twitter. "It will be done in a dignified, orderly - and temporary - manner. But it will be tough for NYers to take."
