Capturing our spirit

I saw a link to this video on Peter VE3HG's blog.

The devil is in the details and some might complain that some of the details in this commercial are not paid attention to - no call signs for instance. And some of the concepts are a bit stretched - did he buy that amplifier himself?  But the basics are sound, and I think this little boy, Sam, captures our Amateur Radio spirit to a "T". At least I think so. What do you think?

    I think it is great. To bad the “Ham Radio is Dead” crowd will never see it!

    This is great – I saw it a few weeks ago and sent it around to our club (about 100+ members). Response was very positive. I wish the ARRL and RSGB would come up with things this good (and I am a member of both groups)!

    Glad you are passing it along to a wider audience!
