    The following URL is very handy to have

    http://www.archive.org/movies/bytitle.html

    There are hundreds of movies about all sorts of things available from this site. The information about the Hallicrafters movies came from one of the reflectors, so I take no credit for finding it.

    There are two sections of the movie entitled "Voice of Victory" (parts I and II). Basically, it tells the story of converting the Hallicrafters HT4B to the now famous BC-610. The links are near the bottom of the list, so you need to scroll down in a hurry unless you are looking for other information.

    The QSO shown early in the movie (made in 1944), shows a W9 in Chicago working a station in California. He is using a D-104 microphone, an HT4B, and what I think is an SX-28. Supposedly working the station on 20 meter AM phone.

    There are varying speeds of download available from "dial up" to "DSL/Cable". Fortunately, I have a cable connection to the Internet so things came down in a hurry. I don't know how well it will work on a "dial up" connection.

    Anyway, the clarity of the video is excellent as is the audio.

    Just a bit of nostalgia, but it is both entertaining and educational.

    Yessireebob, that sure is good stuff. I finally have a reason to be glad I have cable.

    Now my son (age 3-1/2) just got done watching about the LA Fire Dept. I wonder what else I can find to keep him busy . . .

    Thanks Glen!
