But, but... I was always fascinated by the idea that with only a 100-watt transmitter and a wire antenna strung between two trees, a ham radio operator could be heard in Australia from the US!   :O

Well yes I liked the buzzing (ho-hum), but he said sometimes there is classical music and I prefer that...I'm with Mia, I'll just sleep along...the Russians should be able to do something more interesting than pecks and buzzes...

Ya ya I get it, the Russians are REALLY using all this to alter the magnetic/atomic resonance of the Earth's core, to take us out of orbit careening around the galaxy to join up with our dark twin in cosmic entanglement...me an' Mia knew that, we are NOTZ dumb...b...b...b...

But the woodpecker was a form of early-warning radar, meant to detect incoming nuclear missiles, maybe a cheaper version of the DEW line in northern Canada.

After all, the government bigwigs needed to have the 15-minutes' notice to get to their bunkers in time. :ermm:

The DEW line? Tink I remember that from grade school, in the 1950's quite sure! We had our own little newspaper, the Weekly Reader -- DEW was 'Distant Early Warning'...

We had the Weekly Reader too, at least in one of my elementary schools.
