You're welcome.  While we're at it, the opening scene in the movie
"Contact" starts with Ellie Arroway calling CQ and then making contact
with a station in Pensacola.  She figures she needs a bigger antenna
and then the scene changes to when she's an adult (played by Jodie
Foster) standing beside the dish at Arecibo.

Of course, she later goes on to make the ultimate DX catch, hi.
