I never had a HAM operator’s License but in 1991 I served as a UN Peacekeeper in the Western Sahara just north of Mauritania and had a white Toyota Hilux with an HF radio. Our only form of communications back home (there being no internet in 1991) was the postal service, $10.00 per minute Sat Phone or convincing my Australian Army Communications counterparts to teach me how to use the HF to get a “phone patch” to my wife at home in Ottawa. For nine months my wife and I had many extremely public phone conversations each of which required us to say, “over”, every time we finished what we wanted to say. I knew people were obviously listening on our open HF frequency but I actually thought it was kind of cool that a convo between a deployed soldier and his spouse could be shared with anyone with enough interest to listen in. I became a pretty savvy user of my HF radio and my only tactical error with the HF radio happened on one of my last calls home when I had to deliver the news that my service would be required in the mission for an extra month and that I wouldn’t be home by Easter as planned... I pictured Ham radio operators around the world stifling a snicker at my wife’s response to my discouraging news, “I’m getting tired of this mission, I’m getting tired of the Air Force, and I’m getting really tired of saying ‘over’... over”.
Yes I know, nothing to do with Pietenpols but since we’re sharing Ham radio stories...happy new year everyone.

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

Oscar, my call sign was W4KDJ. Have no idea who has it now, but wish I still had it. Chuck

Charles; back when I held a Novice class amateur radio license, my call sign was WN5ODE. So you see, writing an ode has been in my blood from way back ;o)

Terry: thanks for putting into words what several others of us have thought and felt.
