That was interesting reading Ken.  Up until you started with 
high power, I was with you.  I licensed in late 1955 and got 
on 80 meter CW as a Novice about 6 months later.  My parents 
would not let me order anything until I knew I had passed 
the test.  ARC equipment followed for about a year and a 
half.  I did not have a high power AM signal until 1992 when 
I found this Globe King 500A.

I do wish I had  my old Novice license, but I know that is 
long gone.  The best I can do is a QSL card from my elmer 
dated early 1957.  You have made me wonder if anyone here 
has a QSL from KN5MDQ or K5MDQ, especially the Novice one. 
I would like to find a copy.
