I have held both...or all five, if you will.  Culminating with my Amateur Extra in 89, 20wpm and all.  Seems like the Novice and the Advanced were the coolest and most rewarding until I got code proficient. 

We must be very aware of something on the horizon.  If you haven't heard of Operation Quiet Fear, you need to research it immediately.  It could be the death of Amateur radio except for EEs.  Check April 2015 edition of CQ magazine.

Novice WN2JJV--1963-64
General WB2JJV--1964 at the NY City Field Office
Expired around 1970

Retired and 45 years later got the itch again--took the tech exam and got upgraded to General, now W2JJV, living in Tucson.

Put together an early 1970's station so I could take up where I left off.  New gear is just too complicated!!!

73's

Held novice, tech, advanced, General, and now Extra. 

Was a very good learning experience going through each license level.

Best I can remember I obtained my Novice, WN8TCR in 1972, then my General, WB8TCR in 1973.  I did sit for the Advanced shortly after that on a whim while I was at the FCC office for my General Radiotelephone Third Class but didn't pass.  Guess I'll have to look into an Extra now that I'm back in the game.
