CQ cartoon, Jan. 2021

This is one of those cartoons that depends on being part of the “in” crowd and knowing a bunch of ham radio terminology, such as “software-defined radio” (basically a “virtual” radio that runs on a laptop or desktop) and knowing about Gordon West (“Gordo” is a colorful longtime ham radio writer and educator who is a very popular speaker on the hobby circuit, no pun intended) and Diamond Antennas.

These “CQ Predicts” cartoons (which is an occasional series) also depend on remembering The Amazing Criswell, the phony psychic who regularly appeared on talk shows through the 1970s.
