[AMRadio] Old-Timer AMers?

I've enjoyed reading the ages and license length.  I also fit that profile.
69 on December the 3rd and licensed for 59 years.  My radio shaped my life
and many things I did and I love it every day.  Currently using a Collins
75A-1 and 32V-1 that are mint.  Next to it is a Collins R-388 hot rodded by
Chuck Felton and a restored CE 200V for vintage AM.  How much fun is that?

Thanks to everyone for a fun reflector.

Same here.  I turned 65 my last, and I am now in my 49th year as a licensed
amateur.  I hope neither one of us will fall into that "couple of years" 
category, though.

Ashtabula Bill got a chuckle about a decade ago when I told him about a
couple of slopbuckets I overheard in conversation and one of them remarked
"Ashtabula Bill hasn't died yet?".  Looks like they are still having a long
wait.  When I work Bill, we still sometimes get a  laugh out of  that one.
