I was an Amateur Radio operator for many years but I lost interest when the
Internet became popular (1994/1995).

I had a "General license" that I had to study and take a test for and a
bunch of great Kenwood ham radio equipment including a keyboard that sent
out Morse code for me.

I thought I would never forget Morse code but I have. I have way too many
things on my plate right now but very information and great memories you
brought forth for me Gail!
