Know Colorado Pretty Well.

Having grown up in Colorado I know well the area of the Report I produced for Amateur Radio News Line.

Here’s my Corvair at the ranch my Dad had in Pine Colorado.

The car was the very first car I owned, and although you can’t see them in this picture it had two antennas on the front, one for a two way to the Radio station I worked for, the other for a scanner.

 

Ever Wonder Why?

If you are a Ham Radio Operator, have you ever wondered why you like Ham Radio?

I think I have found out why I do.

It’s in my genes.

I was uploading some 35 mm slides into my computer over the past three weeks and I found a picture of my father from somewhere in the mid to late 50s.  Unfortunately, none of the over 500 slides had a label or date on it.  I had to guess in many cases who was in the picture, as it was not always just my immediate family or friends.  I also had to guess as to where they were taken.  Some it was easy as I remember where they were, others, not a clue.

Anyway, here’s the picture of my Dad, sitting in his favorite chair in our living room in the house we lived in next to Cheeseman Park in Denver, Colorado.
