Bob/K0NR operating from the summit of Genesee Mountain (W0C/FR-194) For the ARRL January VHF contest, I did a combination Summits On The Air (SOTA) and contest entry.

Until about two-thirds of the way through the film when you realize that there may be a surprisingly dark hidden message scribbled in the corner by an embittered card maker. Penned by the writers of 2017’s saccharine super-hit A Dog’s Purpose, W. Bruce Cameron and Cathryn Michon, A Dog’s Way Home treads a similar path. There’s a wholesome story about a loyal dog (voiced with an extra-sweet lil...
