The site of the week features a form of amateur radio called EME (Earth Moon Earth)...The communication between radio operators using the moon as a reflector for the signal...Itís a bit technical in nature, but I think you will find this site, as well as the links on it very interesting...They also discuss other modes of communications as well...

Is E.T. out there?...Radio telescopes are being used around the world to find out if there are others amoung us. Our site of the week is just one of many which discusses how scientists are using radio to map space and look for other forms of life amoung the stars.

Morse Code Goes to the Movies is a web site which lists TV, movie, commercial, and documentary information that features the international morse code, no longer in use commercially, or militarily. In most cases the code heard was poor, and quite honestly dribble. That's show biz for you. Take a look at the site, I think youll be quite surprised at what you'll find.

Cliff James World of Communications and Digital Images announces Point-Counter Point Web Site...
A new web page dedicated to the art of debate is now being created. Point Counter Point will offer readers a chance to view commentaries on the various topics presented in the below mentioned categories.

Law & Policing, Social Issues, Community Interest, In the News.

Paul, Digital Images President, and Cliff, World of Communications author will present commentaries on the issues of the day, and will invite readers to join in the debate.
Point Counter Point was originally broadcast as a weekly radio program on a local community radio station in Hamilton Ontario. The radio station was CHMR Mohawk Cable FM, located at Mohawk College. Today that station is C101.5. The concept was to debate a point, and that very concept will apply to the web site, with one major difference; visitors will be encouraged to join in the debate.
The site is currently under construction. Once the site is up on a server readers will be able to point their browsers to the site from a link created on this web site, and Six Lies on Videotape.
