Vintage Film – The World of Amateur Radio

Dick Van Dyke, Barry Goldwater K7UGA, Arthur Godfrey K4LIB and many others extol the virtues of amateur radio in this vintage film from the 1970’s.

On YouTube Tim Verthein KC0JEZ writes:

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.
