Other Interests
I first ran into The FCC in 1953 as a kid. Having followed the instructions and found a ford coil I made this transmitter that was described in a book that my uncle had. as nothing was mentioned in the book (written in 1915) I just built it and went into continous transmit while running around town seeing how far I could hear it with a portable radio. after 3 tays a truck pulled into the front driveway and this man steped out from the FCC. Once he realized that I was responcible and was 8 years old he quickly pointed me to the local Radio club and also mentioned that it was illegal to transmit without a licience. that ended my ham radio career untill 1972 when I got my licience WN6VYB. I droped that call at end of term and got the present call in 1977 with first novice then tech privilages. in 2001 when they droped code to 5wpm I got mt extra. I still do most of my activitys on the vhf through microwave bands but ocasionally go to the hf bands.
