Yes I am a Ham KE7NBN. I am in my second childhood. I got my first license when I was in High School in 1957. Then life came along and I did not have a license until about 5 years ago. The kids were gone so I took the test and got my license again. I do have the antennas in the yard and on the car. I am on HF, VHF and UHF. Since Madeline died I have not had any interest in getting on the air here at home. I do use my 2 meter radio in the car though.
I am so sorry for your loss I know you are missing him something awful. (((HUGS)). I look forward to talking with you on chat also. 88's my dear. Ham radio talk for those that don't know.
