    Tangentially related: When I play basketball with my kids, if anyone ever calls out the score of a 10-4 game I immediately say Good Buddy.

    They have no idea what I am talking about.Report

    Course I got lazy after getting my novice back in the stone ages (we banged rocks together to make our morse code) IIRC when I was 11. I still remember my call sign and wouldn’t you know it stated with Whiskey too?Report

    Did you know (I didn’t until years after I started working here) that NASA Goddard Space Flight Center used to be a guide star for HAM radio?

    You probably did. And don’t care. This is obvy me saying I work somewhere cool by standards I know nothing of.

    Plus, I might have it wrong. But, the HAM radio guys around here told me this, so I’m curious: How important was Greenbelt, Maryland, to HAM radio in the late 50’s early 60’s?Report
