A friend of my dad gave me a Hallicrafters S-38C in 1958. I was 10 years and quickly became an SWL. I had alwayswanted to my ticket, but never got around to it. I began working in commercial radio my junior year in high school, and by then knew a number of hams all of whom encouraged me to get on the air. Finally, while I was serving in Desert Shield/Desert Storm I discovered the FCC had dropped the code requirement. Upon my return to Oklahoma City, engineers at KOMA (both hams) gave me a Q and A program for my computer with the Tech test. I took the test, and in the summer of 1991 finally was licensed as N5VYE. I upgraded to general in 2010. I operate mainly on 20 meters. I have an ICOM 756 ProII and because of antenna restrictions it feeds an Alpha Delta DX-CC in the attic. But it gets out pretty good.
