Spotlight KN5HYB (K5MB)
KN5HYB (K5MB) I got my license in 1957. I sure miss those old boat anchors. The SX96 and Johnson Viking II. That Viking II transmitter might have sunk the boat. I know my neighbors loved it and my Dad spent most of his time apologizing for the TVI when I was on 15 meters. Those were the good old days!

Strays Add a Stray!
MY YL once said, "Does that Antenna have to stay up all the time?" I replied, "Yes, it does."
