I didn't have an Elmer either.  Started at age 9 with a cat whisker radio
and went from there.  At age 10 I went 125 miles  on a bus to Milwaukee all
alone to take the test, which I passed.  59 years later and still a very
active ham on all bands and modes.

Same here Ed.  I just had an interest in doing it, and I did.  I have
friends who were there wanting the same thing, and we did our tests
together, practiced CW together, etc., but don't think we could have hardly
called each other an "Elmer" ...we were just helping each other achieve our
goal.  I still have one of those dear friends, and he is still on the air
with me quite often.  How long has it been since we have been on the
airwaves Kent?  Nearly 40 years?  I sure feel old when I think of that ;)
