I've been a ham since age 12 in 1961. I've been an Extra Class for about three decades.

I'm N6AOT. 1st licensed in 1977. Damn, in just a year from now I'll be able to join QCWA (Quarter Century Wireless Ass'n). Time flies. [When I was a kid the QCWA guys were all the old geezers that really knew their stuff...] 73 Bill

I've had a General Class ticket in "3 land" since 1985. I used to be kinda gung ho about it, but lost interest and sold all my HF gear in the early `90's. Now all I have is an old 2M HT and my Kenwood R2000.

I have seen some export radios for sale, is it true that you can also pick up CB stations as well? if so I might want to buy a radio. I like CB and amateur is getting to be more and more interesting the more I hear about it. Anyone know a place were I can get some good general information for someone who has no idea about amateur radio? here is a link to the page I have been looking at, is it legal to have one of these in the US? Do you think the FCC really wastes any time enforcing license and radio laws anymore? looks like a fun way to talk with friends, but not worth it if its a hassle to get the license.

Yep, for about five years now. Went to a commo seminar sponsored by the Kern Kounty Korps (attended by such notables as Mark from Michigan). Dude suggested everyone get GMRS radios, but I did one better. Read over a study guide once, and then went a couple days later to a Volunteer Examiner. Had the license in the mail in seven days. Spent beaucoup bucks on radios for all my vehicles, and for a handheld. Discovered that I have no interest whatsoever talking on the radio. I still keep them hooked up and functional, for emergency purposes. Come to think of it, that's pretty much why I got the licence in the first place.

Yep... A*4QH...Extra Class, and I was one of the fortunate ones that had to pass all of the Code Tests...Then, I tossed my Iambic Keyer into the nearest field. CW = "Continuous Wave" Transmission Now, CW = "Computer Work"...I use a Terminal Node Controller to send and receive Morse Code on HF. [:D] Great Hobby!

Had dual licenses at one time. KC6CU when I was stationed on Guam. Operated the KG6AKR station on Guam also. Supprised to see so many of you with "Ham" licenses. It sure has changed. I still like to operate in Morse Code.
