That's enough of the animimated ham cartoon experiment. Ham radio has always had humor; Jeeves in QST followed by another cartoon. 73 magazine had cartoons and CQ magazine had the Itchy and Scratchy monthly story. Maybe eham could use a cartoon or humor section.

If you look I am sure that you can find a better example to represent American culture than this. The rounded tone of Carl Sagan and the assuring voice of Walter Cronkite spring to mind.

As a followup to my previous post try the following link for starters, which is safe for work.

Given that the picture was sent using a QRP transmitter over a VERY long distance there is a radio connection.

TAN, my friend says he can make a cartoon featuring you. What would you like the person to look like and what accent should he use?

I have been told that I look like an elder David Duchovny due to my gray hair. As for my accent, any Jewish actor could probably do a fair impression and for starters I suggest you give Judd Hirsch a call if you have his number.

Here's what bothered me about your original post. We have in the Internet possibly the greatest thing since Caxton invented the printing press. No other invention has touched so many souls because through it we can display everything from the glory of DaVinci to the brutality of Pol Pot. We can be amazed by pictures sent across a solar system, heartened by a message from a loved one or be saddened by news of yet another tragedy. There are many who do not have access to the Internet, a billion people sit behind the Great Firewall of China and the people of North Korea have no access at all. What then must Kim Jong-il and Hu Jintao think as they see the West use such a precious resource to send 'yo momma ham radio style' around the world? I suspect that their reaction would be laughter, their plan to drive us slowly downwards is going quite well.

TAN, you are too serious. I prescribe a beer or two and an hour watching the comedy channel.

Who cares what ding dong-il thinks of a cartoon. Blank 'em if they can't take a joke. Jo Mamma!
