Ham Radio History Request:
I'm looking for some historical information about ham radio in LA in 1971. In particular, HF links going to San Jose.
It seems like a strange request, but the younger hams these days don't work HF and I know back then there were a lot of Nets people would check in to (I don't know if they exist still or if they have declined over time or are as active as in the 60s and 70s). Personally, I lack a lot of HF knowledge since I became a ham to do AMSAT stuff. Any information, including possible ARES/MARS work in the LA and southern California to San Jose area would be great.
