14. Thanks for the link. There are so many new kinds of communications
these days. I can hardly keep up with it.

I am on SAP (Secondary Audio Programming), a sub-channel of VHF TV station. It's audio only, but utilized 24/7 by Oregon Public Broadcasting for a whole other station called "Golden Hours". Most people don't know much about it, but we do project 80,000 to 100,000 available audience members in Oregon and southern Washington. In other markets, SAP is used for "described video" for the blind as well as translation into other languages, primarily Spanish in this country.

Also, I'm heard on Web Radio Audio Information Network (WRAIN), which heard on the Internet. That's Omni Media Network, affiliated with some of the blind organizations here in Oregon.

Then, there's regular old "terrestrial" radio -- Amplitude Modification (AM) and Frequency Modulation (FM). I remember when they opened up WEEI-FM in Boston and almost begged people to try it out.

Now, I'm trying to get used to the idea of satellite radio, high definition radio, plus all the options for live, delay, and rebroadcast on the internet.

Fascinating. I wish I could talk with Dr. Sidney Head, who was the first communications professor I had at the University of Miami. He'd would be thoroughly amazed!

In peace,
