Paul Krugman's "Friday Night Music" blog posting on the New York Times' "opinion" website has a video of the Canadian group "Arcade Fire."  The drum (shown near the beginning) clearly has the amateur radio black diamond (with the circuit elements in the middle) on its face.  Anyone know why?

Old story.  The lead founder's dad was a ham.  So he modified the symbols in remembrance.  No it's not illegal. Several hundred ham societies world wide use some variation.  QST has featured them a couple times in the last several years.

LOL.  There's a SYT works the local coffee shop, she had an AF t-shirt on and I floored her when I said, I had heard of that band.  Since then, I bought one of their CD's - they are not too bad at all.

And yea, this is not new, as such.
