[AMRadio] Old Novice Days

I studied for my Novice in the late spring/early summer 1973, and the 40M
frequency was 7100 to 7150.

I recall, if my memory isn't going completely, that some of the OTs back
then said I was lucky  because there were rules that just changed allowing
Novices to use VFO's;  that may have been when the 40M band was shifted.

I checked my old novice log (starting in Sept 1973), and I show all 40M
stuff from 7100 to 7150.
