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.
