    That brings back memories. The original “This is only a test.” agency.

    I wish I still had a radio old enough to have the two little symbols on the AM dial that marked the two CONELRAD frequencies (640 and 1240 IIRC). The idea was that in the event of a Soviet nuclear attack, all stations would switch to those two frequencies so the bombers couldn’t use a broadcast signal as a navigation beacon to their targets like the Japanese did at Pearl Harbor. ICBMs made that obsolete pretty quickly. (I remember air raid drills in elementary school in the ’50s, but I never ducked and/or covered.)

    Air raid drills for us meant going into the school basement. Not a bad idea, as the place was built like a fortress ca. 1910 or so…

    As a child of the ’50s, this is especially delicious.

    Man, I haven’t thought of CONELRAD in DECADES!! And I lived in Florida in the 60’s about 20 miles from MacDill Air Force Base, and remember weekly “Duck and Cover” drills during the Cuban Missile Crisis!

    I thought it was CANELRAD, since the second letter is covered.
