Bought my 1st 23 channel in the early 70's, then came SSB and then ham radio (NC4FR). I guess that is about 30 years plus of yakkin into some type of microphone.

The handle was "fast freddy", folks said I was always coming from or going to eat somewhere!

May Dad used to talk all over the world on his back during the Vietnam war he talked to a solder on Skip I guess, he also used to talk to some lady in Canada a lot they used to exchange money currency and letters in the mail from time to time.

We had a bunch of Q.S.L. Cards from every where, he went by the Little Moon Shiner here in Western KY. And I went by Ro-Ho which stood for a Rooster and the Q.S.L. cards was pretty cool as a matter of fact in the 8th grade in school I got in trouble by passing them out they didn't have a sense of humor.

By the way the Water Tank was our Antenna Tower it was 175 foot to the top it was cut down this year because we had a neighbor that was going to jump off it because him and his wife was having trouble.

Here it is with 3 legs before the fall Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Ok the antenna's on it in the picture was for a pager service but back years ago we had a set of beams on the top of the ball.

Waverider was my CB handle. I had a home base, moble car unit and one in my boat. I only have the unit in the boat now. We use to drive up to a high spot on the island and talk mostly inter-island. I did get QSL cards from Australia and South American.

Shootem:

I understand what you are saying about the "slanguage" but what do you do? My specialty was CW and really enjoyed talking with my fingers. At one time I owned and operated four 2-meter repeaters and they are still on the air today. I also ran a "Hamfest" for 18 years until it became too expensive to run it anymore.

Just like anything else there are always 10% doing 90% of the work in most arenas. I maintained the guy bases at the tower site for a TV station because we had one repeater at 1400'. It wasn't a lot of fun doing it but "I thought" people appreciated it - they don't.

If one of the repeaters wasn't working it was always (what is wrong with the repeater) as opposed to "how have you been doing".

So,I decided to get back into shooting and donated the repeaters to local clubs and shut down the hamfest. I have a 2-meter handheld in the glove box and took my two meter antenna off the SUV. My HF gear is in a box on the floor and I am in the process of creating a list and sell all of my gear and buysome type of combo gun!

One neat thing about it all is that I used to travel to the Dayton Hamvention for their big fest every year. When I started shooting I started going to the Grand and traveled the same roads and stayed in the same motels. It is very rare that someone has two hobbies with their biggest events so close together!

Anyway, I still eat lunch with a bunch of hams at the local cafeteria on Fridays. I am the youngin at 50 and the other guys are retired and living on fixed incomes. But these guys are still building and talking about antennas and the SOS and they love it!

Been a CR'er since the early 70's.

I also run a base station, but hardly turn it on anymore. To much crap out there.

I may be the exception, but I am a 4 wheeler and I have a CB in each of my vehicles. Heck, I wouldn't leave home without them. lol

Always nice to be able to check on the Smokies, or the road conditions ahead...........You know, just in case I want to make a little time.

My CB handle is Ramjet!

Although my wife wanted me to use "Deep Sea Diver" just because................I do it "deeper"............Well..........She said it, not me.........But I never doubted her.............lol......Hauxfan!

Of course I had a CB when I was a trucker, it was a tool of the trade. Some of the handles I have gone by have been Jellybean, Fireball, and Lugnut. Other than that, I was never into CB for the sake of being into CB. Even though there is a lot of garbage on the CB airwaves, its still the best tool to have when you need directions into a warehouse in the middle of some city you've never been to. And aside from keeping tract of where the Smokey's are, its the best way to keep abreast of whats going on down the road ahead of you.

I have, or rather had a ham license (WN9BJJ) but never got past the novice level. I laugh when I hear guys complain about the morse code being an obstacle to getting a ham license. That was the easy part, and it was even fun. I learned that in about a half hour, and was sending and receiving morse messages with a buddy using a key hooked up to a buzzer when I was about 8 years old. My high school had a ham shack, and as I recall, they had Heathkit equipment. Thats where I got my license, and made my few and only ham contacts using morse code. Never did get a station set up at home. By the time I graduated high school, I had lost interest in it. I figure it might be a good hobby to take up again when I retire. I am really amazed at how sophisticated (and expensive) ham equipment has gotten. Every spring I like going over to the Dayton Hamvention, the largest gathering of its kind anywhere in the world (yes, its MUCH bigger than the Grand), and look at all the neat toys those guys play with.

I agree with Big Tom, I also spent most of my life "Looking at the world through a windshield". Great way to avoid running afoul of the law, or getting around traffic jams. My handle was Sourdough, due to the fact that I lived in Alaska back in the 60's. Retired now, and the CB is collecting dust on a shelf. Time to put the hammer down!

"Rockster"

"Jungle Jim"

With the liner turned on it was "Giddy Up Go". A set of MoonRaker 6's and a 1000 watts on that screaming Eagle base with a D104 chicken choker mic would talk about anywhere I wanted to talk.

The FCC issued a new licence several years back with a 5 words per minute code requirement instead of the old 13 WPM requirement. It was reffered to as the "Low Code Licence"

This month or last month the FCC lifted the Morse Code Requirements for a General Class licence. Now called the "No Code Licence"

Guess they can't be called "Silent Key's" when the pass.

Well the days of CW have gone by the wayside. You are no longer required to pass a morse code exam to get a HAM license.

Hey it is no big deal and here is why. Back when I was very active in promoting HAM Radio folks were interested in communicating.

Locally we taught potential hams how to operate their equipment. That included a few areas that included not acting like a dumba** on the air.

So, it was really up to the locals to train the new folks. There were a few that slipped through with the 10 codes and they usually got with the program.

I used to catch heat when folks realized that I came up through the 11 meter CB/SSB ranks to Ham radio. They were an arrogant crew of stuck up aristocrats to say the least.

I enjoyed watching them pay their money to attend one of the most successful ham radio events in the Southeast that I organized.

Did I enjoy talking on the radio sure, will I talk on the radio again sometime maybe, does learning cw make you a better ham radio operator don't think so.

I still have a old Johnson "white face" tube unit on the shelf. Anybody interested? Does anybody remember them? I remember when the Browning Screaming Eagle was the big dog in the CB world prior to SSB. The owners would turn them up to make them squeal when they keyed the mike so every one would know they had one.

It takes Waaay more than filling out an application to get a ham radio license today. There are several tests that have to be taken on a multitude of subjects, including some electronics, antenna theory, rules and regs. etc. The higher the license class, the more privileges. I know I've been teaching classes for 25 years. Its a real shame that the Morse requirements were let go, but thats the way things happen. People want everything "easy", no effort involved. It can definitely increase the chance of more "flakes" getting into it, but it isn't as bad as some people thought it would be. CW on the air is just as popular as it ever was, at least there is some skill involved, there is NO skill involved with just yapping. If you get on the air on a contest weekend, there will be thousands of people on the air just flying away with high-speed morse, enjoying the hell out of themselves!

By the way, I've worked every country in the world mixed mode, thats 341 countries at the present time and am at the top of the DXCC Honor Roll, and I think just 4 or 5 more countries and will also have them all via Morse. Along with about 50 by satellite, about the same by telytype. In spite of the internet grabbing some of the younger kids, ham radio is just as popular as ever.

And Bob Finger - You were right, that guy has no clue what he was talking about as far as ERP. As far as some of you who don't know what we are talking about, ham radio has NOTHING to do with the "childrens band" or CB!
