On a June day in 1969, ham radio operators who happened to have their receivers turned to 14324 kilohertz heard this message: "This is L12B. We are approximately 920 miles from the nearest island in the Lesser Antilles and about 2400 miles from Morocco. The papyrus taftRall came through enormous seas undamaged, but we are drifting sideways helplessly. . . ." The listening hams who checked the call letters and discovered that LI designates a Norwegian ham station began to wonder how a Norwegian radio amateur could possibly be drifting 920 miles from the Lesser Antilles. L12B was the call assigned to the ham station aboard Norwegian explorer Thor HeyerdahTs reed raft; the hams on board were taking part in HeyerdahTs historic attempt to prove that Central and South America could have been settled by Africans sailing across the Atlantic on tiny reed rafts, rather than by Asians coming down from Russia via Alaska, as most anthropologists believe. Heyerdahl set out to make the journey himself on a raft similar to those African explorers might have used hundreds or even thousands of years before Columbus. His only concession to the twentieth century on Ra II was ham radio. Before his departure Heyerdahl had arranged for a network of ham radio operators to report on his progress and to alert rescuers if the need arose. For the hams who participated in the project, as well as for those who just eavesdropped, the broadcasts from the Heyerdahl expedition proved to be exciting listening.   Mark the best choice         1.   The first paragraph suggests that some ham radio operators __________.
