I was lucky enough to uncover a piece of SEDXC history yesterday while helping out a non ham buddy of mine. I have an friend who owns the former home of Bill Harp, K4LFC. In helping clean out the house yesterday in preparation for some new renters coming in, they asked me to take a look at some of the amateur radio things Bill left behind.
What I found was of interest to me - old log books, tons of QSLs, and other assorted ham information. Some interesting stuff to look over. This is what really got me - I have the original club roster and bank balance book of the SEDXC from 1958-1969.
In 1958, dues were $2, and at the end of the year, the club had $74.04 in the bank. I recognize a few calls out of this book, most are SK's, but one in particular sticks out - John, K4BAI. John has been paying dues to the SEDXC since 1960. WOW! Way to go John!
I have not found any more things from the SEDXC, but if I find any, I'll be sure to let you all know.
