 [now i am not sure if this is HAM radio or what exactly, in the
 classroom, used for education. but it sounds fascinating. as their
 are many HAM-radio operators around, mostly older, i would imagine,
 but young people still getting licenses (and morse-code lessons).
 it is the sense that the radio and wireless are possible .edu tools
 for contemplating communications, and learning about things that may
 otherwise be impossible, through a book, or other method of study.]
