audio, video, and war

I really enjoyed the Code of conduct post on ke9v.net:

The ARRL often reminded amateurs of our neutrality (obviously prior to Pearl Harbor).

From the pages of QST in December 1940 here is “The ARRL Code of Conduct for All US Radio Amateurs“...

Follow the link above for the entire article.

Earlier today, a news website I visited had a stunning Reuters photograph of an Israeli-perpetrated explosion in Lebanon. We live in a world of photographed and televised war; details reach the globe in seconds. My complaint is that shortwave broadcasters, especially Radio Havana Cuba, announce war news that is at least a day old.
