I swear I remember mom getting her ticket in 1967.  She is WB5BBF, 
recently upgraded to general and renewed her ticket for another 10 years.

Even then, I *thought* I recalled the novice frequencies on 40m being 
from 7100 ~ 7150kc. 
The fone band was the same as it is now... 7150 ~ 7300kc.

Are you sure your first QSO was on 7160kc?
