What really happened to Amelia Earhart

The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) believes it has the key to unlock the decades-old mystery of what happened to famed aviator Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan in their planned circumnavigation of the globe in 1937. TIGHAR’s The Earhart Project analyzed dozens of radio transmissions received by radio amateurs and other short-wave listeners during the frantic search to locate Earhart’s plane when she did make her scheduled arrival at Howland Island. Many theories have sprung up over the years to explain the mysterious disappearance, but a TIGHAR research paper entitled The Post-Loss Radio Signals, published in July by The Earhart Project, maintains that “the patterns and relationships emerging from the data show that TIGHAR has answered the 81-year-old question: ‘What really happened to Amelia Earhart?’”


Everyone is familiar with the common joke that duct tape can fix just about any situation. While this tends to be the case, especially when speed and ease of a repair are in question, keeping a roll of duct tape at the ready can become vital in emergency situations. This handy resource should be a staple in any survival kit or bug out bag, since the applications for duct tape can be your key to survival.

Some newer hams may not realize the deeper value of these stations but they were definately a requirement back in "the old days"

Accurate time keeping for several types of schedules and such had nothing else to reference as at that time there were no computers or internet
