Dick Van Dyke, Barry Goldwater, Arthur Godfrey and many others extol the virtues of amateur "ham" radio in this vintage film. I converted this old and somewhat damaged 16mm film to video tape many many years ago when the technology to do that was rather archaic. I have now converted those old video reels to digital movies. Not the best quality but still quite amusing.
note: I have corrected the title here on youtube. this is "The World of Amateur Radio" NOT "The Ham's Wide World" as I had originally posted. I do have the "Ham's Wide World" also uploaded here.
If you can't see the video for any reason, can you let us know via the Contact Us page. We would also like your suggestions, anything to do with our radio hobby.
