I don't share the Navy training background (I was an Army grunt) but I 
attended (Bishop) Fenwick HS in Oak Park, IL and was "chief operator" of 
the radio club from '57 till '61.  A Dominican priest, Father Ed 
Robinson was the trustee of the club, W9ANF, and also a physics 
teacher!  He's still an active ham (W5QXS) and still maintains a weekly 
schedule on 20 meter SSB(sorry) with some of us former students and his 
ham brothers, K0APW and W6LEJ!

The radio club proudly used a BC-610 then so hopefully I have maintained 
some AM continuity in this post .... .. (:-)
