Jesus and Amateur Radio

It seems to me that Jesus would have been an amateur radio operator, though, realistically, He would not need a radio, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIN, or Google+ technology to reach the hearts and minds of men.

However, I'm a Christian ham ... a member of the Christian Amateur Radio Fellowship and have participated in the Bible Fellowship Net.

Here's some others who mix their hobby with the Faith.

Idaho Christian Resources - Amateur Radio and Christian Links, MP3's and PDF Files

"Sunrise Bible Study Group"

Hams for Christ

"World Association of Christian Radio Amateurs and Listeners"

"Ambassadors for Christ Net meets daily on 7.280 MHz. Monday thru Friday at 18:00 UTC, Saturday at 19:00 UTC"

A number of RemoteHams stations are dedicated to Christian Networks.  Can't reach your favorite net because of propagation?  Check the remotes.

Are there others?

Content is King #SMEM

In the early days of blogging, proponents encouraged folks to bring content to the table.

One can not expect to have any followers without writing something.  This is all the more true in social media.

Think about how many followers one would have on Twitter, if the person did not tweet.

Below is a link help you find content for your Twitter, Facebook, Wordpress, Blogger, Google+ accounts.

For example, over at WX5EM, one will find a twitter account that is automated.  Something goes out from there, provided by the weather service offices that cover Oklahoma regularly.  Tweet the account and a live person answers, if an answer is required.  While there are not a terribly high number of followers, all the followers would care about Oklahoma weather.

Do you write something every week?  Is it interesting?

Here's some Wednesday humor for you.

An old, tired-looking dog wandered into the yard.  I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home.
He followed me into the house, down the hall, and fell asleep in a corner.

An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out.
The next day he was back, resumed his position  in the hall, and slept for an hour.  This continued for several weeks.
Curious, I pinned a note to his collar: “Every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap.”
The next day he arrived with a different note pinned to his collar: “He lives in a home with ten children — he’s trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?”

Living in the #OKdrought in #AltusOK

Yes, three years ago, I tweeted about the drought around here.

If you find it strange that I am still tweeting about drought, droughts don't come sweeping in like a tornado, wreck stuff, and leave.

Rather, droughts ooze in, linger, and don't leave when asked.

Droughts are hard for emergency managers because of that.

Twitter / kc5fm: Three years ago, I was tweeting ...:

'via Blog this'

How is the drought affecting you?
