It pays to listen to HAM's? It was this time.
« on: December 19, 2023, 0325 UTC »
I go to bed at night with a Sangean ATS-803A. When I think that C2C AM has a guest that sucks, I'll plug-in the W.O.G. antenna and fall asleep listening to HAM's on 75M and 160M. I tuned-in to the 3878kHz group, late Thursday night, and heard them talk about this big flu epidemic going around. Whelp... A day later my household was sick, very sick, and incredibly fast oncoming. Now, has anyone in the mainstream news media picked-up on this? We've heard zilch here.
UPDATE 12/21/2023 :  Actually, FOX News had the new COVID strain in the news late, late, Monday night. Then, CBS News that day afterwards.

I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.
