A Radioman's Nightmare

Gary, Indiana Editor, QST:


The following poem was written by S. W. Scott of Los Angeles. It is intended to be sung to the tune of "Mairzy Doats" - if you haven't forgotten that one by now:
 
A.C. volts
And D.C. volts
 
And little ohms and amperes.
A little inductance, too,
Wouldn't Q.
 
With micromhos And E.C.O.'s
And little microfarads,
I'm more than a little nuts.
Aren't you?

If these terms sound queer
And screwy to your ear,
A bit off resonance and freaky,
Say LCR and A.V.C.,
I think my condenser is leaky.

Ohmzy's Laws
And Kirchoff's bores­This
is a little crazy. Radio's crazy, too.
Aren't μ.?

- Anton Varga,jr. RM1c, W9WIB
