Hey All,
    I am new to this reflector. Just thought I would add my .02c worth 
about age. I am fairly new to the hobby, getting my ticket in Feb. 01. 
Since I am getting a little older myself (turned 50 on 7/19) and have no 
prior experience in radio, I am drawn to the older tube gear. I was told 
that if I master the tube stuff that the new things would be easier to 
learn. The theory is to start out with the simple circuits and build up. 
So far so good. I have a strong desire to learn this stuff and am, but 
in my job (Radio Tech.) there is nothing but black box repairs. No body 
has the time to teach anymore. If it is broke, just replace it! I have 
been working in our radio shop for about 3 years (first year as a 
trainee) and I do about 2% bench work! That is the sad part about the 
hobby. The knowledge base has to diminish with so few teaching the few 
that really want to learn.  It _is_ wonderful to have you great folks on 
these reflectors to bail us new guys out of jams. Keep up the good work 
till we can take the helm!

** This is just my opinion! Your results may vary!

If you would like to see my project list, just look me up on QRZ. 73!

In His service,
