To all,

I am writing an English paper on ham radio, and how ham radio is a great asset to our society because it 1.  allows us to communicate great distances for FREE (or cost of electricity and equip) and 2.  How we (as hams) can assist local government agencies during emergencies.

I remember a while back, I came accross an article (I believe to be on eham.net) about an older gentleman's life as a ham, and I remember a blub in the article about how he was requested by the government go assist in communications during ww2.

Does anyone remember this article?
Thanks.

All the articles remain available online.  Unfortunately, all we have for a search tool is one that searches their titles.  So unless you remember a word from the title, you'll have to page back through the old articles and hope one rings a bell.  Just click the "Articles" link in the left menu and click the page-back arrow to view 15 (or so) titles at a time.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Can't help with that story but have you contacted
the ARRL at www.arrl.org ?

They would be happy to help you with some info
for your project, even if you are not an ARRL member.

73 and good luck with that report !

This was very common during WWII and Korea. You might
get more information by contacting the U.S.Army
Signal Corps. or ARRL.
