I don't seem to be able to find it on the WWROF site, but there was a
webniar of "When the Giants Walked the Bands", or something close to that.

It was about the early days of multi-multi contesting.

Paper logs, pencils, people smoking in the shack...  Hand keying all CW...
All from days gone by.
