Been a ham since 1987 or 88. Anybody here get excited about radio communication. I think more of it than I do tv.


Yours in shooting

My Dad was a HAM radio operator for many years (1950's - 1980's). He had a corner of the basement set up as his radio room, and antennas all over the back yard.
He talked with people all over the world. He was especially thrilled when he talked with someone on a ship at sea since Dad had once been a merchant seaman himself. Also, he was a Czech and enjoyed talking with Czechs and Slovaks in Europe. One time I remember he talked with someone on Easter Island in the South Pacific.
I still remember his call sign; WA2CVQ.
Dad tried real hard to interest my brother and myself in HAM radio, but to no effect. We simply were not interested.


Know what you believe in. Fight for your beliefs. Never compromise away your rights.

One really has to have an interest in that sort of thing. Nowadays the youth don't have much interest because of all the computers and smart phone and ipod gaming. Sadly radio is diminishing.

Hi Kelly. I always had an interest in the HAM radios. My dad was really into those things.

However, I do not need another hobby. I will never complete all the projects in my mind as is. Big Grin
