I started in Ham radio back in 1974 with novice callsign WN1UGZ back in Vermont. Then upgraded to general in 1976. Back then you had to take your test at an FCC office so my elmer (K1NKU-sk) and I had to drive several hours to Boston which normally takes about 4 hours but we had to drive through a bad snow storm and actually arrived late. The examiner hesitated but let us in because of the distance and bad weather. Anyway passed my general and missed the Advanced exam by 1 question. What a bummer. I did finally get my Advanced 25 or 30 years later. Then of course got my Extra Class a few years later.
After several years in the Army I got a job as a Firefighter for Bernalillo County Fire Dept. Although I have my 20 years in and can retire I'm not sure when the XYL will let me. Hi Hi. But not to worry. It is still a cool job.
