Our search for the Lost Island DX Society continues as the team sifts through an age of forgotten relics. I want to introduce typewriter, receiver, and microwaves as potential clues or equipment actually operated by society membership?
Imagine, the physical effort it took to depress each key on the mechanical typewriter and the clanking sound as the typebars rose into the air striking the bottom of the platen? Perhaps, the society can credit itself with the invention of the term, fat fingers as well.
Too, it is hotly contested inside shackadelic whether or not members pounded out Morse code on a straight key or opted for the bug? Consensus is leading us down the trail of a bug instead of a straight key. The movement of one's fingers is like a fine motor muscle ballet and Lost Island membership doesn't evoke brutish tendencies according to the investigative team.
On the other hand, a straight key is pure Morse code savagery in its motion, unlike the refinement of the bug swing.
We did agree however anyone associated with the Lost Island DX Society must prefer tubes instead of solid state circuitry. The team believes society membership has a passion for the glow. I cannot imagine them coming within the near field of a software defined radio now or then? There is something to be said about the projected eternal warmth and romance of tube based wireless sets. I'm smitten by the vision of owning a rather famous line of wireless radios manufactured by a Mister Rockwell and/or Mister Collins.
Additionally, the investigative team is firm, the Lost Island DX Society does not wear their shack on the belt.
The investigative team agreed a potential might exist that early manufacturers of such high technology could possibly be founding members of the society, itself. Currently, there is 'no' evidence suggesting otherwise or to the contrary, it is purely garbage.
The modern term for this speculation is conspiracy theory therefore maintaining plausibility in today's age of fast food facts.
Lastly, the odd ball in our evidence pool, is the military microwave dish that operates at 10 Gigahertz. The team is hedging that the Lost Island DX Society foresaw the proliferation of digital devices operating at or near the same frequency range. One might connect them as the Nostradamus' of ultra high frequency wireless radio. Can they see the future in the glow? Have they abandoned this frequency range? What about the bug swing?
We have not concluded our study into whether or not membership is now operating their wireless sets in the dark matter frequency range. More to follow on this topic in the near future.
