Re: Ham radio in Films & TV ?



"Contact" the Movie, w/Jodie Foster as Ellie.

"This is W9GFO calling CQ"....Nice close up of one of the big
Rigs, maybe an FT-1000 iirc in the movie theatre version, never
managed to spot it on the video, or DVD version

W9GFO, this is G7III/A..../A being from an alien planet...I
wish...Oh wait...


Iain (who just *adores* that movie, and the character Ellie, and wont
incriminate himself by commenting on Jodie :>)
