    Ask Handy Andy, as it may be the channel for which the Apocalypse is announced. Journal entries (tail tweak, here).

    Or,

    “. . there were shepherds residing in the fields nearby, tending to their flocks by night . . . “

    (Practicing with a QRP rig).


    CH. 9: Reserved for the Unknown.
    Not for the unknowable.

    So we are saying Channel 9 is received for the Almighty. Then what radio would Jesus use? WRWJU?

    I think the need for channel 9 has diminished with the advent of cb's with scan function and cell phones, but you already know that...

    Hmmm...Should I answer...?

    Or let the Phone Ring...



    Sadly, the novel cause the Channel is supposed to represent, has been drowned out by the Shouts and Echoes of others that take to the notion that they are more important.

    That Channel is no longer "quiet" enough to hear peoples cries for help, it has been supplanted by Technology that has evolved since then, under such names as Samsung, Nokia - Motorola.

    Heck Even Google

    it's more personal now, "Every Life Matters"

    We can't take back that which never was ours to begin with.

    When the skip is running, channel 9 was the one channel not full of norte`s jabbering in english.

    If you're that far south, it would be the only halfway clear channel.
