Got the radio bug back in the early 60s from visiting the shacks of WA8APG and W8SSH with best friend Steve. He caught it too and is now N8CTI. My grandfather gave me a Westinghouse portable AM 13 transistor radio for my birthday. It later fell off my bike handlebars and something happened to the IF. We were hearing all kinds of strange communications, which turned out to be barges on the Mississippi. Together, Steve and I built Knight Kit walkie talkies and a Star Roamer too! Ah, the stuff dreams are made of! Needed the help of WA8LGO to get the mess straightened out after staying up 24 hours building the Star Roamer. Worked great after that and we spent many hours together exploring "short wave". I miss those late night sessions with solder smoke and diagonal cutters! Fell into the CB craze back in the 70s when my call was KDF9063. Over the years I have built a number of Heath products. An HW-101 was my first real rig as KA8EXX, and later as N8BJD, built an HW-2036. CW is probably my favorite mode but also enjoy traffic handling on phone. Used to haunt the MNN, MiTN, 8th Region and even subbed a few times on the EAN (with trepidation and fear, may I say). Oh yeah, can't forget many Saturday nights as net control on the GLETN too. It's been a great hobby for me even though the internet has snagged my interest of late. Should thank WD8IBY for elmering me through those first few months. Have a used TS830s wrapped up under the Christmas tree just waiting for that morning! Look out ether, here I come again!!
