Default The world's most trusted man

Today's E-mail carried the following message from the ARRL.
You should be able to find the entire message at

Legendary CBS newsman Walter Cronkite, KB2GSD, who held the title of
''Most Trusted Man in America,'' passed away Friday, July 17 after a
long illness. He was 92.


I did not know Walter was a ham, No wonder he was so good at his job. I won't say "He will be missed" as.. Well, he has been missed, for several years now, ever since he retired.

The full article tells how he came to be licensed. Link to full Bulletin

I have to say, I had much more confidence in him then many of these anchors we have today. Too much biased reporting going on. I really don't care which side they take. Just give me the facts. "The facts 'mam, just the facts", as Jack Webb (Joe Friday) used to say.
