Packet Radio on Network TV

On July 16 at 0745 PDT, a packet from N6ECT was heard throughout the nation on the CBS Morning News show. Curtis Spangler, N6ECT, was being interviewed by CBS for a piece on the Haight/Ashbury and the film crew focused on his CRT. As luck would have it, Curtis was transmitting packets through the KA6M digipeater. The audio from one of the packets came through loud and clear, and the frame was heard in all 50 states and throughout half the world Via KA6M.
