I used to be a Ham. KA5NXA was my call sign. Had a Hallicrafters HT-37
transmitter and a Drake 2B receiver. Good times.

Jack; your mention of the Drake 2B receiver really brought back memories. My best
friend in high school, Horace Watson, was the guy who got me interested in
ham radio. We both took classes from the local ARRL club to prepare for the Novice
exam and to learn Morse. He had a Drake 2B and it was a radio that I always
imagined I might own when I was rich and successful and could afford to own
a really classy and professional radio. Mine was a Radio Shack receiver kit
that I built. Horace and I built and put up a 40m folded dipole antenna on
the roof of his garage, later to be joined by a 108-136MHz 1/4-wave groundplane
base station antenna for his aircraft band receiver. We were the only two kids
in high school who set our watches by WWV ;o)

He and I took the FAA private pilot written exam the same day, administered by
the weather specialist who manned the Cotulla, Texas FSS. Back in the day, you
could walk into the FSS for an in-person WX briefing or to look at the prog
charts and sequence reports as they came off the teletype. I believe Horace and
I were both 16 at the time and we both passed the private pilot written with
scores in the 90s. He went on to fly a 150, which I couldn't afford (like I
couldn't afford the Drake 2B), but just being around the airport and VHF radio
chatter was enough to keep the dream alive. Now here I am. Horace died a couple
of years ago.

Thanks so much for letting us know, Laura. He had a good run, he became a good friend of mine, and I am proud to say that I own and fly something that he built with his own hands.

Wow, We all know him from his Pietenpol building and flying posts. But that was apparently one corner of his life and interests. God Bless.
