WOW! How time flies

It was 56 years ago today that direct dial coast to coast was enabled in the U.S.
It was expensive and required alot of shouting over static.
By one monopolistic entity who actually BUILT the system.
Removed because frigging DISH NETWORK Keeps telling me I'm using too much bndwidth!
Do NOT sign up for DISH NETWORK broadband- get wild blue instead.

Today, I'm sitting midway between Castroville, Tx and Hondo, Tx (8 miles to the closest city services) and sending this up to a satellite from my own personal communication station on my roof.

In ten years this setup will be (maybe) worth being in a museum.
