Yeah, it's another OT thread.
Les (LK) and Marc (frenchelectrician) and myself are all radio hams, we were talking about this the other night in the ECN Chatrooms.
How many of you guys have a Amateur Operators licence, no matter what country you come from?
A lot of Electricians seem to be drawn towards radio, not sure why that is, but I got my start in electricity from a crystal set and a huge long-wire antenna.
To start the ball rolling, Mike ZL3TPQ.
What's your call?

Yes, indeed Mike, many electricians seem to be drawn towards radio, I am also not sure why that is. I got my start in amature radio, early on, built most of my rigs, I still operate CW on 40 and every once in a while 17 and 20.

I don't suppose a Childrens Band license counts wink

You know I have to be old to even have one of those.
