THIS SITE WAS EDITED BY MY GIRLFRIEND (must have been 300 years ago) LONG LONG AGO BUT IN 2019 IT IS BEING TAKEN DOWN OVER RIDICULE BY THE NEW "TECH CROWD". IT IS IMMATERIAL TO ME IF I WERE EVER IN THE PACIFIC AND WISH NOT TO BE SUBJECT TO ENDLESS JOKES AND ENDLESS BLABBERINGS ABOUT THE PACIFIC WHEN EVERYTHING IS PROBABLY FICTION BECAUSE A GOOD PART OF 'TECH' TALK IS ALWAYS FICTION. NO...NOT ALWAYS....BUT GET A CALL OUT OF GUAM OR MARIANA ISLANDS AND THE ENDLESS JOKES ? SURE..IT IS EASY WITH A POSTAL MAILING ADDRESS but TRY TO ENLIST THE SERVICES OF SUCH FROM THE US TERRITORIES TO USA. LET ME KNOW YOUR LUCK. (there is no carrier delivery -- just PO Boxes at the post office..)




ghhh I hate TECHNICIANS !!!! NO !!!! It is like I don't like New Yorkers !!! That mean I dislike all New Yorkers ?? NO !!! Hey..make out an application ?? !!




I sort of returned to Amateur Radio. Too much moving around !! Now the majority of Amateur Radio is of Technician Class. Once it was not. I frequented a few obscure Radio Clubs. Soon I thought...what the H ?? Nothing about Amateur Radio or Radio in general. There have been many vents by other people in messageboards etc. The Amateur 'Ticket' is just a way to upgrade their career a notch !! It is possible but often not. They seem to have no interest in Radio. Ever notice I never attempt to insult/irritate other people on the web ? These people seem to do nothing but attack the profile and habits of others !!! They never seem to have an email address. A call-sign ? They call people Trolls when they live there 24/7/365 censoring people. Post anything they do not like and !! A similar question in 6 month period ? h hey..every time you have a new audience ? A big Troll that shows up every 9 months ? Instead of a pursuit of a Radio Hobby they live in places like QRZ/EHAM and track/follow people etc. I guess this is the new SOCIAL MEDIA Days so I guess all this is not that bazaar. BUT- Wonder about things when you learn somebody has been tracking you for years and collecting info etc ?? hmmmm

Ever notice how some business minded people never post 'personals' on the web ?

OK..the atmosphere ? Environment ? People get into the hobby for what they are interested in. If it is VHF/UHF and up forever WONDERFUL ..Their interest. In 1965 there was no Incentive Licensing. Amateur Radio was doing wonderful. The ARRL concluded the hobby needed more brains so introduced Incentive Licensing. Pushed it through the FCC until it became law. The most recent license class the GENERAL was to be demoted and the older classes NO. I mean normally the most recent licensed people were the GENERAL. Those not taking a test in 200 Years were probably the Advanced etc. My father had an Advanced and got it during the Civil War. Amateur Radio went through some hard times a people like 73 Magazine and others had their following.

OK..the environment ? Everybody around you was into High Frequency vs. Today. Some VHF/UHF but not like today. A difference to the enviorement ? A big crowd that just sits on a 2 meter repeater till they die ? I know somebody semi-local that all he wants is a TECH license but he is a 6 Meter Nut. Chases 6 meter DX. -- and other bands.. AGAIN..the hobby is what you are interested in !!!





I am thinking of sticking a few old images on this page. Something to joke about ? !!

I possess so much website space on the internet I have no need for content to be put on QSL.NET but thank them and the ability of perhaps some budget restricted people (or anybody without busting the budget but some places on Earth to get web space. 3rd World locations ?





First License after Years and Years of Radio Listening

Another Application. 160 at the time was being made unusable as strong SSB did not mix with weak signal CW -- Nothing to do with SSB only !!
