I too recently found this forum as I am thinking about getting back in the hobby. I have been licensed since I was 13 but have not been active for almost 40 years. As for this thread, I was(am) WPE4CVO, but cannot for the life of me imagine I actually remembered the call after all these years! My first SW receiver was an S-38E which I still had up to about 10 years ago. I may just buy one of the replacement certificates off eBay!
