We were at Weston Rd and State Rd 84 … in Markham Park, demonstrating how Amateur Radio (Ham Radio) operators can set up in minimal time, including with emergency power, completely off the grid, to provide communications in emergencies.
The media went 5 miles further west to report on a decayed human remains. But they didn’t bother, despite being invited, to stop by to Ham Radio Field Day operations. I guess it’s more sensational, the human remains, than Ham Radio Field Day. We ended Field Day operations at 2pm Sunday and started our tear down (disassembly) of our antennas and equipment and temporary structures (tents.) The sensational human remains thing came to light Monday morning. Either that kept them from coming (the day before or two?) or the sensation of a sexual scandal involving former Vice President Al Gore. I guess they would rather report on GORE than on GOOD things. Pun totally intended. Now if we’d have shot a racoon … or one of us got eaten by a wild alligator in the woods – in the park – they might have stopped by. Maybe?
