It explains what my Uncle was up to on Kwajalein and in the back of beyond in Australia during the Cold War. Working for RCA, my ass.

I used to goad him when I was out visiting them in Maryland and we'd go by Fort Meade on the way to a huge liquor store on our daily beer run. I'd say, "Fort Meade? Isn't that where the NSA is based?" He'd go, "Never heard of them!" It became sort of a running joke between us. He was my first Fansome.

I wonder if this technology can detect the incoming confiscatory cosmic cretins who have recently threatened to come for our shortwave receivers? I've been up on my roof with a flashlight for two days now, with zero response.

Are you using one of your old foil lined fez's as a reflector? They're a long way out there.

We're working to perfect the elusive foil fez, but it's still in early beta test trials.
