Stop press! He’s done a radio program with a guy who had a PhD. Well he must know then.

@scottcarson1957 @alexismadrigal @bobstep Even in the late 1980s when I was producer at @891adelaide we were still sending out DX cards.

@bobstep @alexismadrigal @scottcarson1957 It all seemed so exotic and distant back then. TV made a big deal of “live via satellite” then.

@bobstep @alexismadrigal @scottcarson1957 I remember the other way around, listening to Radio Moscow via dodgy long-wire aerials…

@scottcarson1957 @alexismadrigal Yeah, I have hazy memories of using some amateur radio satellite link? Gawd, what was that again?

@scottcarson1957 @alexismadrigal Yep, from Australia it was popular to try for Antarctic research stations. And ships at sea.

@alexismadrigal @scottcarson1957 I’m not surprised. We’re talking bleeding edge technology here. Before HAARP destroyed everything. ;)

RT @alexismadrigal Anyone ever heard of this amateur radio hobby known as DXing? [Yep, been around for decades. Did a bit at school.]

So the consensus seems to be broadly in favour of the harpooning of Senators, under certain, fairly broad, conditions. Thanks you.
