Saturday night (11-6-04, I was watching the Turner Classic Moviess station.  They were doing a 10-15 minute spot on Amateur Radio.  The film appears to have been made in the 1950-1960 era.  It was really quite good.  They had a drama going on with a downed airplane with search and rescue effort, by an Amateur, in an airplane, sending morse code from a straight key, attached to his clip board.  Citizens would gather around there shortwave radio in there living room, listening and copying his updates on the search.  Meanwhile, a mother is making dinner and wonders where everybody is.  She finds them all in the living room huddled around the radio, listening to Amamteur phone signals from China.  There was a lot more to it than I'm sharing here, but it was really very good!
