I am a "new" AMer myself but I have been a broadcast engineer for over
25 years. I'm 49 but NOT eligible for QCWA. I sure wish I was. I was
discouraged from becoming a ham when I was in high school but the desire
never left me. After getting past the hurdles of getting married,
buying a house, and having kids, I finally took the plunge and I'm
having a blast!
Just try to overlook the soreheads and the critics. There's a lot of
'em out there but I've found out that there are even more who are
willing to encourage you and make this quite an enjoyable hobby. If I
can help in any way, don't hesitate to ask. Most everything I work with
is far bigger than most ham gear but I've found that the electrons don't
know the difference so they act the same whether in a BIG radio or a
little radio. :-)
Several of us in Amarillo, Texas are thinking of forming the AMAAMA --
AMArillo AMers Association. I don't know where you are but if there's
enough of you, you might consider the same; or, just get a bunch
together on the air. Maybe the fever will spread!
Happy Hamming & 73,
Steve White, W5SAW
