Bens Best Bent Wire
My uncle, who was a Merchant Marine in WWII used to tell me this. He was a ham, and said it would develop my fist musically.
I was a small child at the time, and through his enthusiasm for all things geeky, especially Ham Radio, he inspired me to pursue technology as both a hobby and vocation - an old crystal AM radio kit was my introduction into the fascinating world of radio propagation and electronics, but information I have on the musically phrased, Bens Best Bent Wire, is rather sparse I find.
So what is the backstory on this, and especially, what is the nature of its endearment to amateur radio, that so many Hams are enamored of?
