    You have to admit, it was mighty nice of HRO to take them in and keep them in business.

    Terry and I go way back. I was first licensed in 1954. The days of full-carrier AM 'phone. The few who pioneered in SSB were called sidewinders. Terry's dad had an electronics store in Fond du Lac, about 60 miles south of Green Bay. He was a year older than me, and had a big Packard V8, which he drove in second gear, so the battery could keep his Elmac AF-67 on 3950 (the Wisconsin calling and working frequency).

    July 28 will mark the 3rd anniversary of the closing of AES, a huge part of ham radio history. An interesting video reposted here:

    Some companies like Heathkit, Taylor Tubes and Ten-Tec are still "in business". Someone bought the rights to the trademark and name, but that doesn't mean it's the same company.
