Publicity Special Event & a new movie, Frequency

  After seeing that you can find/buy/use any 2-way radio or wireless
device, message system, phone or satellite/computer without being a HAM
these days, I' was getting a little depressed about the future of the
hobby.  But was slowly concluding that its not the TECHNOLOGY, its what WE
DO WITH it that makes our hobby fun.  I was going to post a get-out-n-play
message, but then saw this message (below).  Maybe it is a great
opportunity!  Set up a table outside your local Movie theatre and show
your stuff!  A Great All-American HAM-day.

 unprecedented solar conditions...
