Sounds like Jon knows how to have fun! My bet is the hobby will hold his
interest a lot longer than for the kilobuck ricebox or shack-on-a-belt
I made my first contact as a Johnny Novice back in '83 with a transmitter I
built myself - a 6AU6 driving a 6146 (OK, so I used a Knight VFO with it).
Been hamming non-stop ever since, can't ever see giving it a rest.
...who is 50, but was much younger 25 years ago!
