    Thanks for the Hugo Gernsback information. I know him from SF, was able to visit Uncle Hugo's in MN years ago. Had no idea of the radio connection. -Fred KD9CCE

    I know I'm going to love this series of articles Dave and look forward to every post you make! I'm not only an avid ham, I'm a history buff as well. Have you ever read the book, The Victorian Internet, by Tom Standage? Amazon's intro says, Beginning with the Abbe Nollet's famous experiment of 1746, when he successfully demonstrated that electricity could pass from one end to the other of a chain of two hundred monks, Tom Standage tells the story of the spread of the telegraph and its transformation of the Victorian world. The telegraph was greeted by all the same concerns, hype, social panic and excitement that now surround the Internet, and Standage provides both a fascinating insight into the past and a context in which to think rather differently of today's concerns. Standage has a wonderful prose style and an excellent eye for the telling and engaging story. Popular history at its best.

    I loved it and could barely lay it down it was so intriguing!

    Looking forward to these forays into (thus far) lesser known people, places and things of ham radio lore. One of the things that always intrigues me about the hobby is the length that some hams will go to just to get on the air. Specifically I'm talking about indoor antennas and operating positions constructed under constraints such as space, the need for concealment (think HOAs and clandestine purposes), spousal approval, budget, etc. As a DX station for many years, I enjoyed calling QRZ for stations using indoor antennas and then asking for descriptions or even photos of these engineering marvels that could send a signal around the world. Perhaps an idea for a future column.

    A wonderful start. Please be sure at some point to tell the sad story of Lee DeForest -- a hero of mine from teenage years. Thanks!

    Hi brad, there's nothing better for me at this time than a good idea. I have committed to at least 3 articles a month, and that's a tough deadline for sure. With an idea like yours, I can see how that might develop into a real interesting review of one angle of our hobby . . . how the desire to get on the air forces thinking and creativity that brings new ideas, new antennas and more. Thank you Brad. Keep coming back, please. Dave

    Las revistas del hobby han sido esenciales para tener una buena referencia de los equipos que se diseñan y se fabrican , creo que sera un buen tema para algún comentario.

    I wonder if this will blossom into a competitor of QST.
