Readers with an Amazon Prime Video account may be interested in this free viewing from a bygone era of amateur radio.

WWII Amateur Radio Films is a collection of what appears to be at least three separate ham radio related documentaries stitched together into a single video loop.

A collection of historical films documenting the importance of amateur ham radio communication during WWII. Also includes a look at the Military Affiliate Radio System during the 1970s.

The whole thing was interesting, but it might be especially so for anyone who appreciates vintage gear. The first segment details the conversion of a popular amateur radio transmitter being modified for military use by The Hallicrafters Company during World War II.

Sorry if you’ve already seen it, but I thought it a swell way for any amateur radio enthusiast with an appreciation for radio history to spend 78 minutes on a Friday evening. Enjoy!
