My first introduction to Amateur Radio was from my electronics teacher in High School, Joseph Aversa, K1UVD, back in 1981. I would finally take the test in 1992 and pass as a No Code Tech. I purchased my first radio in the form of a Radio Shack HTX-202 model from a marine shop that didn't know what they had.
I learned a lot about the 2 meter band with the exclusive use of HT's and the limited power. A good antenna, is key. Spent nearly a year commuting with an Alinco DJ-5V dual band HT and a 5/8’s wave antenna. I eventually tired of the HT’s limitations though, and was able to upgrade to a mobile Icom IC-2100 and then a duel band mobile FT-7800 from Yaesu in relative quick succession. The Yaesu is in the vehicle and the rest is in my Shack.  I’m using a Arrow Jpole at the house with the Icom.  I have a Kenwood TS440 all HF bands, 80's vintage radio, I repaired, that would have been around when I was in high school. Running it through a Radiowavz Scout 10-20.  Working to expand out over the world. Hope to hear from you. 73! W4GAD!
