Hear, Hear! I had kindly people who put up with my lame early
attempts. As I recall, the first taste of radiosport was at Field day.
They brought me through in stages, from having me observe for a half
hour or so, then logging for another Operator, then finally take over
the mic after a couple hours logging. It was my first HF QSO, and it
was plenty scary. Lot's of fun though. I was hooked.
