Thanks for posting that. I enjoyed it.

His comment that Morse code (or cw?) has saved more live than any other form of communication was interesting. Would be interesting to know the stats behind the comment.

Nice news video -- but, did I hear them right.  Someone said there were over 2 million amateurs in America!  Maybe they meant all amateurs, like radio, golf, photographer, etc.

Regarding "2 million,"

IMO, the British media takes a few liberties in portrayal of the minor details.

(But then again we've allegedly had a network news anchor reporting a bogus story on a president's military record, based on a forged document that was so poorly made it used fonts not in existence at the time it would have been drafted.)

"2 million," I love it!

I wonder which has saved more lives, CW or the Heimlich Maneuver?

Well, it matters not.  Great story nonetheless from the British Boastful Community.

:-)
