Synopsis

An insight into a small group of Radio Hams in Melbourne who (since the 1970s) have conducted rambling and inane conversations until the early hours of the morning via complex multiplex radio connections that even the Oz Govt Radio Authorities have yet to figure out.

    Recordings of Aus hams in the 1940's,Gee they sound like a lot of gerryatrics but the fact is they were young men then. It was just the way people talked at that time (Righto old boy!).
