“I am often asked how radio works. Well, you see, wire telegraphy is like a very long cat. You yank his tail in New York and he meows in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? Now, radio is exactly the same, except that there is no cat.” -Attributed to Albert Einstein

Professional-quality cartoons by radio amateur Greg Trook, N0UJR. Funny and well done.

Ham 1 — Hey I hear Old Megawatt is retiring from Ham Radio
Ham 2 — Yeah I heard him say that before
Ham 1 — I know, but this time the FCC said it!

An elderly ham driver was going down the interstate when suddenly his 2 meter rig crackled his call…Answering…he heard a fellow ham’s urgent warning…..”Hey Jim, just heard on the news that there’s a car going down I-35 the wrong way, please be careful”!!
Jim replied,”Well I declare, it’s not just one…….there’s hundreds of them’!!!!!!!!!
