    Abdul: That’s an urban legend. http://usgovinfo.about…. and http://www.siouxcityjou…

    It was a fabrication by a writer for Time magazine named Frank Pellegrini.

    Check your sources next time. You might want to try being more skeptical of things you didn’t hear first hand and less smug.

    I just want to know what part of Lower Slobbovia they’re living in to need a radio set like that to hear President Roosevelt.

    Toronto: Well based off of the telegraph key on the left of the table I would guess that’s Junior’s old ham radio station that he operated before joining the Signal Corps. I mean it is an amateur radio magazine, right? QST Journal? You think?

    I almost forgot…the advertiser is a dead giveaway too. Hammerlund manufactured shortwave radios that looked suspiciously like the radio that upset you so much http://en.wikipedia.org…
