movie frequency

well, i am done for now and tired. went to the preview of frequency at the 
request of their advertising agent and mahana (w5bts) and myself setup 
some hf equipment and some vhf equipment as well as a laptop tracking the 

we were right outside the door to the theatre showing the movie so when 
people were lining up to enter, they got to see all the equipment. did not have 
much activity, very few questions. then i stayed outside the door with the 
radios and people passing by for other movies asked questions. mahana 
wanted to see the movie again. 

when the movie was over, we got swamped. people that were not hams knew 
the story line involved ham radio but the general public didn't really know. 
afterwards, they were asking all kinds of questions and we gave out a bunch 
of literature on becomming a ham.

so those of you that will be setting up at theatres in your town, be prepared 
for the exodus. the beginning is going to be slow. but hold your horses 
because you are going to get swamped.
