Re: OzarkCon University Program Change



I'm getting out of my depth now. 
Let's all hope that I'm right and you are wrong on this.
We do live in "interesting times" and that's for sure.

I apologize to any extent that I may have politicized this 4SQRP (safe space) forum.
My point - and I should have left it at that - was/is that the topic is timely and relevant. On this I think we can both agree.

It was CONELRAD (CONtrol of ELectromagnetic RADiation).  Hams were obliged to QRT when the alert signal was broadcast on AM and FM radio. It lasted until 1963 when a different system applied.

I must contradict Don to say that we ARE at, not just near, "those old "Cold War" days.  We have in front of us in 2014 and again in 2022 Vladimir Putin's re-Stalinization of Russia, effectively a restoration of the USSR.

Dave's bona fides look OK to me.

Does anyone remember ham radio's participation in the CONALRAD alert program?

I don't believe that we are anywhere even remotely near a return to those old "Cold War" days.

Nonetheless Daves's topic seems to me to be timely, cogent, and most entirely worthy,

Just my opinion.

Would that I could be at OzarkCon 2022 for Dave's presentation and all else.

Next year!
