I was doing some research today to further both my knowledge of Ham radio operations for August license testing and to compile information for the communications plan I am writing for my chapter. In that research, I found an absolute gem of a document published by the FCC during May of 1943. As I believe you like American history as I do, I have attached a PDF copy from the FCC website for you on this email. I’m almost tempted to print and frame this for hanging in my office, and I may do just that!
We both know of course, that this document was made during the years of World War II, and that 1943 was a year when victory for our country didn’t look promising. From everything I have read in terms of after action reports by battlefield commanders and like information (I focused on this part of history during college for my minor in American history), we were pretty much getting our butts handed to us on all fronts!
What makes this document relative to us however, is how much Ham operators contributed to America and Allied forces during war years, both at home and abroad.
