In 1941 just before World War-II my father bought a 1942 ARRL handbook. There was a picture of a 21/2 meter transmitter on the cover and it cost one dollar. I wore that book out looking at it and wishing for stuff I could never afford with the depression still on. I was about ten years old. I wore out a 1946 handbook too. I still have the 1942 ARRL handbook.

For about a year in 1949 and 1950 I spent one night a week working the Civil Air Patrol Net from a concrete bunker building in the Hollywood hills above Los Angeles, building ground plane antennas and converting surplus WW2 radios, mostly Air Corps SCR-522s and Navy ARC-4s for CAP use.

A whole bunch of years later, in 2009, I finally took the Tech test. No one could accuse me of being hasty. In 2010 I passed the General test.

Currently working HF with a fine Kenwood TS-930SAT using a home-made 260' OCF Windom inverted v and 2 meters on an old Yaesu 2600M with an old Hallicrafters unidirectional antenna on the end of my home at about 40' high. For mobile I have a couple of Yaesu 1500Ms with mag mount antennas.

God Bless America, Land that I love ... May He keep us always free with our liberty as defined in the Bill Of Rights and our government obeying the Constitution.
