Always interested in radio. From stereos to CB to Ham. Was a CBer in the late 70s when that was the thing. Studied Marine Electronics and planned on doing that for a living but went a different route. Took a Novice class in early 80's and got my ticket. Purchased my first rig and set up a station. Worked on my code and soon passed my Tech, General, and Advanced class exams. Never could pass the 20 wpm for Extra even though I passed the written. Was very active in amateur radio for many years but took about a 20 year break. Just getting back into the hobby again. I have a new Yaesu FT-450 I am still learning to use as well as Ham Radio Deluxe. Now trying my hand at the digital modes using the DM-780 program.
