Some little known history of Ham Radio

From Steve Sizemore

Hey Paul!

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. 

INSTRUCTION ON THE THIRD SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine's
The Church's Year

At the Introit of the Mass the Church calls upon all to invoke our Lord:
INTROIT Look Thou upon me, and have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am alone and poor. See my abjection and my labor, and forgive me all my sins, O my God. (Ps. XXIV.) To Thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul. In Thee, O my God, I put my trust, let me not be ashamed. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end, Amen
COLLECT O God, the protector of them that hope in Thee, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy: multiply Thy mercy upon us, that, guided and directed by Thee, we may so pass amid temporal goods as not to lose the eternal. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who livest and reignest with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end, Amen.
EPISTLE (I Pet: V. 6-11.) Dearly beloved, Be you humbled under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in the time of visitation: casting all your care upon him, for he hath care of you. Be sober and watch: because your adversary, the devil, as a roaring lion, goeth about, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist ye, strong in faith: knowing that the same affliction befalls your brethren who are in the world. But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory in Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a little, will himself perfect you and confirm you and establish you. To him be glory and empire for ever and ever. Amen.
EXPLANATION In this lesson St. Peter teaches that if we would be exalted we must humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God. This necessary humility shows itself in us by giving ourselves and all our cares up to the providence of God who, as St. Augustine says, provides for one as for all. We should not fail, however, to be sober and circumspect, and not think ourselves secure from the lusts of the world. The devil like a lion seeking prey, desires the ruin of our souls, tormenting us by temptations and afflictions. By confidence in God's help we can and should resist him, especially when we consider that after the trials of this life the crown of glory will be our portion for all eternity.
