Your email to the list was very inspiring.  I truly enjoyed reading it and
you can be assured it very much made my day when I was feeling a little

I won't sugar coat it - True, you may be a little older than the average
ham, but with age comes wisdom and experience.

I revere both those traits in a person.


Like many in North America,(and likely elsewhere) I also became a ham at a
young age. 14 in my case. With nearly 39 yrs as a ham, sometimes I think I
am experienced, but

then I realize there are those out there with double my experience and it's
a little humbling.

I have enjoyed the advances in technology and reaching out to folks on the
air waves and now, by internet too.


I can appreciate typing is very slow for you, but many on the list (myself
incl) would surely welcome more posts from you to understand

about ham radio in the early days and also what keeps you going into the
hobby today and how its changed for you.


Thanks very much Paul,
