Ham Member Lookups: 406


I've been interested in radio before I was a teen. I taught school grades 3rd thru 12th in a small town in Oregon, Camas Valley. I have a Masters Degree in Education. I retired and got my General ticket a couple years ago. I am aTotal Larngectomee, that is a person whose vocal cords have been removed. I contracted Cancer 9 years ago. It started on my vocal cords. The operation left me MUTE. I thought,"Oh No, no more radio!" Unacceptable so I learned to talk without vocal cords. The Ham community has helped tremendously in that Hams require a good signal, sound, and articulation. I was Mute for 2 agonizing years. I am fortunate to be able to speak at all. So many can't who have had this sort of operation. I enjoy the radio and the people in it. I hope I can encourage others who have speech difficulties to take a chance and talk. 73s KE7LDX

ALSO, if you know any larygnectomees or anyone with speech problems who want to be a ham but  are afraid to talk in public they can call me on OEN net time with a ham friend.  3:980.00@6:00 P.M.  e-mail me at beardsldx@outlook.com.  There is a Great Big World out there to listen and talk to! Thank You 73s
