First Call: WN4TPN issued in 1951

Back in 1951, I was 15 years old and voluntarily attending summer school to learn how to touch-type, a skill that has been very useful over the decades. When I read in QST that the Novice test was to be given in Nashville, TN, for the first time, I decided to take that test...

My knowledge, and that of the ham in the tower, of the Morse code proved to be a very important skill.
