Amateur radio today hosted by Walter Cronkite, SK


Thanks to Peter Roberage for providing this copy of "Amateur  Radio Today", narrated by the late CBS news anchor, Walter Cronkite (KB2GSD). Cronkite produced several popular promotional videos for the ARRL. This last effort is a moving tribute to the Amateur Radio Community and the service it renders to our cities, counties, states, and nations. Although I didn't always agree with Mr. Cronkite's commentary on the daily news, I respected his cool professionalism and candor. He was a perfect "salesman" for Amateur Radio. He will be missed, and "that's the way it is..." For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars. These news feeds are updated daily.
