My Ham Radio History
Ham Radio began for me when I was 9 years old. I had a fascination with flashlights, batteries, bulbs, and wire. Mom and Dad hid the flashlights in the house because I would take them apart, but I was never able to get them back together in working order.
My family took a vacation to Colorado when I was 9 and
stopped by the brother for one Dad's friends. Lo and behold, this guy
was a ham. Now, I don't remember much, but I do remember a lot of black
boxes in large vertical racks. I would not leave the room. This guy
gave be a J-38 hand key which I still have today. That was in 1959.
