Took and passed my Novice test back in the early 1970s. Tried for the General but froze up on the 13-wpm code portion and settled for a Technician license, which was fairly useless since we didn't have any 6 and 2-meter gear. Ended up letting it expire.

After my dad passed away a couple years ago I was looking at his license and decided to finish what I started, passing the Extra because I had a grudge. Built an Elecraft KX3, which really underscores the state of the art and how everything had gone digital, even the RF front end and signal processing.

Oh, and after getting burned out on composite work, I sat Midlana aside last November and have been working non-stop on a koi pond redesign. Built an all-new pond and filtration system: rotating drum filter, moving-bed bio section, and two sand/gravel filters plus UV. Several times I'd be sweating it out digging and the little voice would ask, " wouldn't you rather be working on the car? No! I ended up handing the composite parts the a small paint shop and said "call me when it's done."
