“Shortwave” – student film recounts 1973 Military Coup in Chile


Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Gary Wise (W4EEY), who writes:

YouTube recommended a video titled, “Short Wave”. Of course I had to watch.

It looks like it might be  student film. It recounts the 1973 Military Coup in Chile with a ham radio operator reporting from Santiago.

Takes me back to my college days. Worth a look:

    My ham club is looking for radio related films. Do you know how to get a copy that could be played for a group. Maybe on tape or compact disk. I would like to share this meeting with others.
