Ham Radio Operators Do It

And now for some engineering funnies:

Ham Radio Operators do it with more frequency and less resistance.


Three guys in a car: A mechanical engineer, a Ham Radio operator and a MicroSoft employee are on their way to a meeting when suddenly the car in which they were riding breaks down.

“It’s probably the cable that opens the valve on the carb has come loose, pop the hood and I’ll have us back on the road in no time.” quipped the mechanical engineer.

“I doubt it,” replied the Ham Radio operator, “It has been observed that 83.2 % of similar failures result from the distributor contacts becoming corroded or misaligned, I’ll clean the contacts and we’ll be on our way.”

“No, no, no!” cried the MicroSoft employee: “This car is equipped with a state of the art computer, what we need to do is turn the key off, all get completely out of the car, then get back in and it should start like normal.”
