You have tuned into CONELRAD at 640 & 1240 AM on your Internet dial. Please punch this station into your bookmark file and feel free to visit us as often as you like. For unlike the old CONELRAD, we're available 24/7. You may be asking yourself what WAS CONELRAD? CONELRAD was a national Emergency Broadcasting System outlet available during the early Cold War. What IS CONELRAD? CONELRAD is a site devoted to ATOMIC CULTURE past and present but without all the distracting and pedantic polemics.

The end-all five-o-clock shadow CONELRAD is the creation of writers who grew up in the shadow of the BOMB and all its attendant pop culture fallout. We wish to share our collected interest, experience and obsession with this strange era and thereby provide as much information as possible to the public. This is not to say we're living in the past! The Day After Trinity is now and forever more and we will reflect that reality here. From apocalyptic Y2K scenarios to the Russians redirecting their ICBMs at our shores, CONELRAD is always on the Eve of Destruction. Watch our News Wire and check the old Atomic Clock from time to time and you'll always feel safe.

Any shadow will offer protection from searing flash.

In addition to our own writing on all things ATOMIC, we aim to provide a comprehensive clearinghouse of atomic links. There is a lot of material out there and we will continue to update this section frequently. Furthermore, we extend an open invitation to those of you out there who share our passion for Atomania to send us your suggestions and submissions.

You are now welcome to open a nice cold can of Emergency Drinking Water and proceed.
