I asked Jackie KA5LMZ, aka "The Goddess of Radio", long time ham and our club president, how she got involved in ham radio.
Most couples who are both hams, it was the husband first, then the wife later gets licensed at his urging. With Jackie, it's the other way around. She's an Extra, her daughter a General, her husband and chief antenna hanger is a Tech.
Anyway, she answered, "When I was a schoolgirl I had read about ham radio, talking to people in other states and far away places on the radio. Now what little girl wouldn't want to do that?"
