This is the exclusive internet debut of the movie "Last Voice From Kuwait" produced by Frank Moore, WA1URA and WANE - TV. The movie is in three parts. Enjoy:
Back in 1990 – 1991 a very brave amateur radio operator named Abdul-Jabbar Ma’rafi, 9K2DZ, became literally the last voice from Kuwait. When Saddam Hussein and the Iraqi army invaded his country, Abdul remained on the ham radio at his peril right under the nose of the invaders. He was able to report many of the atrocities committed by the Iraqis as well as reporting troop movements and warnings to coalition forces. After Saddam was driven out, Abdul remained at work relaying many hundreds of health and welfare messages to Kuwaiti family members in the free world awaiting word from loved ones in the war torn country.
The following video documents the activities of this courageous ham operator during his country’s darkest hour. It is also a testament to the power of amateur radio. Our disaster might not be an invasion by a blood crazed dictator, but after hurricane Katrina and the Tennessee tornadoes of April 2006, we have to admit that our very own disaster lurks right around the corner. We must be prepared. --Thomas Hamilton
