I pretty well did it on my own, too.  Did have an older friend give me my 
Novice test, and I used to call him on the phone for advice.  When I got my 
first xmtr on the air and couldn't get to load, he came out and helped me 
troubleshoot it.

I just wish that dumb-sounding term "elmer" would go away for good.  What's 
wrong with "mentor"?
