To lighten the mood there’s a Tasmanian tradition we do, it’s simple - tell Chuck Norris jokes!

  • “Chuck Norris and Superman once fought each other on a bet. The loser had to start wearing his underwear on the outside of his pants.
  • Chuck Norris has already been to Mars; that's why there are no signs of life.
  • When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night, he checks his closet for Chuck Norris.
  • Outer space exists because it's afraid to be on the same planet with Chuck Norris.
  • Chuck Norris destroyed the periodic table, because Chuck Norris only recognizes the element of surprise.
  • Chuck Norris can slam a revolving door.
  • Chuck Norris can win a game of Connect Four in only three moves.
  • Chuck Norris once built a sandcastle. We call this the Great Pyramid of Giza.”

Here’s a recording of communications on 14.205 on the 27th of April: (Courtesy of YouTube)

The Global Emergency Communications Network is currently on 14205, 14215 and on 21360.

One of the most exciting things about shortwave is that amateur radio enthusiasts from around the world can if via their own set-up or relays can assist with the Nepalese crisis  even if not even in the country. Shortwave as we know, can be broadcast into other regions. This is yet another example where this type of technology can make differences to natural disasters. It is such a pity that we are more reliant on other technologies. Shortwave yet again comes to the rescue!
