I listened way back into Art days up until I retired a couple years ago. I still listen from time to time.

Listened in the Art Bell days and the early George period. When the local stations dropped I moved on. Same with Phil Hendrie ("Get in there and make me some bean dip"). Very Happy

I used to love Phil Hendrie's version of Art Bell.  Twisted Evil

pb: You and Mrs. Vito are in full agreement. She can't stand Phil, and she doesn't get Monty Python either. She doesn't appreciate satire.

Meanwhile, some of the funniest stuff I've ever heard came out of Phil's mouth...especially the mouths of his characters.

I guess this explains why you're fond of zinging me about having "no sense of humor" (not that I think you actually believe it...well, not fully, anyway  Wink  ).

I admit it's a mutant sense of humor, but it's hardly non-existent. It's born of a literal mind, and a perspective that sees the world differently from the way other folks do. It's prolly a birth defect, but I've learned to live with it.

I understood what he was attempting. My problem stems from the fact that there are 100,000,000 interesting people and stories and Phil thought it better to waste airspace with himself, and 14 other himself.
Coast to Coast AM, NPR, and dozens and dozens of other late night programs, are proof that there are too many interesting stories to listen to some assbag talking to himself

pb: I listened to Phil for the comedy, and I don't watch/listen to comedy for any other purpose than to be entertained. I did a lot of my listening to Phil while I was driving, or while I was puttering around in my workshop, or doing something else that didn't require 110% of my attention, and I could listen and chew gum at the same time.

Actually, the vast majority of talk radio is noise to me...especially the kind of crap NPR was always blatting every time I tried to listen to it. There was always a leftoidal bias in everything I heard, so I finally gave up. Have they changed? If so, that's great, but it sure wasn't the way it used to be. I didn’t need the stress of listening to their perpetual spin.

Same for the news; what a load of crap. It's mostly who killed, raped, robbed, or otherwise screwed with whom, or what new forms of coercion the state is trying to whup on the sheep whose capacity for tolerating attacks on their freedom is apparently inexhaustible.

A sort of mentor I used to know once told me this:
    "Your most valuable asset is your attitude. Protect it. Have the discernment not to constantly expose yourself to stuff that destroys your motivation, your happiness, and your willingness to see opportunity where others see only downside. Be realistic, and don't put your head in the sand. But there's already enough trouble in the world. You might not be able to keep it from knocking on your door, but you don't have to invite it in and give it a comfortable place to sit."
That was some of the most valuable advice I ever heard from anyone.

So, I was usually thankful for the comedic respite from the daily grind that I got from Phil’s show. Admittedly, his politics were haywire—a confused hodgepodge of left and right ideology. Fortunately, there wasn’t much of that at the time I was listening (mostly while he was on KFI 640 AM in L.A.).

I listened for the comedy...period. I wasn’t there to be educated, informed, persuaded, convinced, or indoctrinated. I just listened for the laughs, and Phil provided those by the boatload.

Long time ago, in a land far far away, I used to listen to late night AM radio. And shortwave. Most regular was "The Charlie Douglas Road Gang" on WWL out of New Orleans.

Now days it's ham radio. 160m thru 6m. Today I worked H40GC 15m (Temotu) and S9YY 40m (Sao Tome), both on CW. 73 K9ZM sunny

They say "I read you 5×9, good day" and then talk to the next guy in the pile up.  

Give me a rag chew over a pile up any day..Lol.  Zero interest in dx chasing.. And not for lack of wanting to like it.. I try but that aspect of the hobby annoys me. Lol.   Probably as bad as a contestor that just run across a , Hows the weather net.  Lol.

As PB said, mostly, some of us don't talk. The demand for a contact,signal report and confirmation of callsign, is so great that there is little time for chatting. Not that chatting cannot be done. I am more that DXer and contester type of ham. Weak signal work.

Not to say that I will not be found on the upper end of 80m chatting with the guys from the CB radio days. And sometimes these overseas hams want to chat a bit. English is the language of business and education. So almost all hams speak it. Some almost as poorly as we do. Laughing

Hams can be found talking about everything. Actually talking (phone, AM, SSB, FM), CW (Morse code), and digital modes (RTTY, ISCAT, JT65, JT9 etc) which are very popular today. Even slow scan TV and some fast scan. You do not even need a station of your own today. You can get on the Internet and rent one.

If you watch those vids. Those DXpeditions to those Antarctic islands. You will see some mosses and lichens. With the occasional grass. As my friend Ralph K9ZO explained. "That dirt you see, ain't dirt. Everything is covered in seal and penquin poop. There is only rock, the sea, and poop." Laughing Laughing Laughing

Carlos: That cut to the Bhutan segment in the first video pretty nearly gave me Discontinuity Whiplash™...until I figured out that (apparently) it's in there because they have a fellow ham radio operator in Bhutan.

What was the purpose of the AmsterdamDX expedition? Was it just to log as many contacts as possible before weather drove them off the island? Why was that important to them? Just trying to grok it...

Not that it's any crazier than any other hobby, like collecting license plates, or posting one's every (bowel) movement on Facebag.

That first segment was a collage of the various countries these guys have operated from as a group. Guys meaning the main core group. There is hams at some of these rare locations. The ham at Bhutan is one of those. But he cannot hope to meet the demand for a contact with him to satisfy the awards programs our national associations keep track of. Unless he was on the air a lot. And he isn't.

Amsterdam Island had not been active in well over a decade. There is people there. French scientists doing experiments. A small base of operations. In the old days, a couple sailing around the world could just stop in at the nearest French base. Or other country concerned. And let them know their intention to operate from one of their islands, and receive an official blessing. That is no longer the case. That was touched upon. The massive expense for ham radio to go to some of these places and leave no trace of having been there. Doing it safely.

What do we get? A certificate. A plaque that we have to pay for. Like climbing Everest. "Because it's there." Working all the possible countries of the world can be a lifetime. I need one now. Scarborough Reef in the South China Sea. With the recent decision by the World Court that Scarborough Reef belongs to the Philippines, it may cease to be a country for our purposes. As long as it may have belonged to China, it met the criteria.

This is all very serious stuff. For those that take it seriously. Other people raise their eyebrows. Laughing But those are some fascinating places in the world. I have three friends nearby that are in those videos. They are very fortunate.

Carlos: Thanks, amigo, for taking the time to provide me with that glimpse into a world I know almost nothing about — one that (except for the occasional brief mentions by you and PeeBee) is almost completely off my radar.

Thanks to your generous reply, I now have a sense of the scope of the ham radio passion. How cool that it cuts across genders, races, nationalities, borders…and almost certainly the kinds of political, religious, and ideological differences that otherwise alienate folks from one another.

It seems to me that playing with the hardware gizmos (which is a form of fun I can easily relate to) must be a big part of the hobby’s attraction. But I also get a sense of community there — something that we even manage to attain here on BoB when we can bring ourselves to set aside our differences.

That’s a very cool thing in itself; it’s the unifying force of shared experience — one of the important intangible forms of property whose value is greater than the sum of its parts.

Thanks again for sharing a peek into that world, bro’.

When I worked late night shifts and overnights I used to listen every night. Now, not so much as my schedule doesn't permit. Every once in a while though, I get a chance, and I still love the show. Many times, Art or George kept me company and fueled my imagination.

First time poster... long time George Noory fan..... Smile i have the C2C app on my phone. I download the podcasts and playthem in my truck when i am driving to job sites or plug my phone into my earmuffs when im running a saw dropping timber . I love the guests and most topics.... but sometimes the callers "cheapen" it as some of them sound like they just fell off the turnup truck

Cut 'em a little slack, falling off of a turnip truck hurts like a mofo. I can't imagine talking to someone as it was happening. Laughing Laughing
