Hi Friends,

Have you seen the movie “Gravity” with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. This movie is crazy good.

Dr. Ryan Stone (played by Sandra Bullock) is a brilliant engineer on her first space shuttle mission with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (played by George Clooney). On a seemingly routine space walk disaster strikes.

The whole movie has Sandra Bullock and George Clooney floating around in zero gravity. I have no idea how this movie was filmed. Everything looks so real, so believable. It is so hard to imagine Sandra Bullock was married to Jesse James the reality TV tattooed mechanic but it is very easy to believe Sandra Bullock is in space working as an astronaut.

Truth is always stranger than fiction.

I am not going to spoil the plot or ending for you but just let me say I highly recommend the movie.

Radio waves are a little like gravity. We all feel the effects without really knowing how it works. I know how to use radios. But I am not sure I truly understand the finer points of radio frequency emanation. Our customers know how to use and benefit from 2 way radios without having to know the science behind radio waves.

So sit back and enjoy the movie. You don’t have to understand gravity to enjoy “Gravity”.

Keep using your 2 way radios and walkie talkies. You don’t have to understand radios to benefit from the increase in safety, improvement in efficiency and the boost in productivity that only 2 way radios provide.

Best Wishes,

Hi Friends,


Do you remember descriptive nick names?  I have a friend we call Bucky. After he wore braces for a couple of years there seemed little reason to refer to Louis W. Peacore as Bucky but the name stuck. Even with straight teeth he is still Bucky Peacore.

Charles Lindbergh was nicknamed Slim by his friends until he crossed the Atlantic in 1927. Thereafter he was known as Lucky Lindbergh. Blinky, Porky and Slats used to be common nicknames. I have no idea what Slats refers to. Quincy Jones referred to  his friend Michael Jackson as Smelly. Quincy said the way people gathered around Michael  it was as if they could smell him.

Products had nicknames also. The Piper Cherokee Aircraft was known for its “Hersey Bar” wing design. That airplane’s wings were built in the same proportion as the famous candy bar.

In the spirit of descriptive nicknames we proudly announce the introduction of our “Soap Bar” desktop radio. This radio looks like a large bar of soap with an antenna. The Soap Bar radio plugs into a wall outlet and sits on any flat surface. No need for batteries or chargers. The desktop radio works seamlessly with all the other radios at your school or business.
