I was about 8 years old when my Ham neighbour invited me round to his shack. I was amazed at all the foreign languages. He later gave me a crystal set modified to receive the European 49m band which was jumping in the 1950's cold war era - loud and clear in the evenings. Eddy Startz on the Radio Nederland's "Happy Station" on Sunday Mornings - easily received in Essex, England.
