SOS
SOS really doesn't stand for anything, as any radio operator will tell you,

it is simply "SOS" becuase the letters S and O are very easy to understand under conditions of high interferance.

so stop saying "Save our whatever"

MHz
Pronunciated: "Megahertz" not "M.H.Z."

Megahertz means 1000 kilohertz (kHz) and kilohertz means 1000 Hz (cycles per second)

1 MHz = 1000 kHz = 1,000,000 Hz
Wow, sense I listen to DC101, who has a transmitter on 101.1 MHz, thats 101,100 kHz, which is 101,100,000 Hz (cycles per second)

GPS
Global Positioning System

Complex network of satellites that transmit signals to ground receviers in cars, boats, airplanes (see also VOR). The GPS receiver uses the signals from the satellites (which are over 15,000 miles away!) and uses them to find your location, anywhere in the world, with incredable accuracy.
Without GPS, countless losers who can't use a VOR would be lost"
