Ham Radio memories
I really enjoyed listening to all those old stories. Reminded me of the '50s and 60s (when I was a kid). I built lots of Heathkits and Allied Radio, etc. I've always wanted to get a Ham License, but the code has always stopped me. Later at work (Illinois Bell, Mountain Bell/US West) I did get my First Class comercial license because I was working in Mobile Telephone (MT/IMTS) and microwave radio.
Millions of Hams world wide
Great to see a show for the millions of amateur radio operators world wide. Bob is a well-respected member of the community and is well-suited to put together a suite of guests for the show. As it finds its stride it should be a great addition to the TWIT lineup.
