"Applicant must have his own visor and sleeve garters."
You think you're joking? Worked with the Shop Steward who sat watch at all times with the green eyeshade, even at night. Other
guy had been spy's radio operator in the O.S.S, forerunner of CIA. Sat watch with his bug, two opened rolls of Rolaids
and a pocket-sized Bible on the desk at all times. A little-bit jumpy, some might say.
Well, for what it's worth, Tiffany Mansell at NRE/W5YI group told today by email they can do the code tests and all I need to do is go to their site and search by state to find the nearest examiner. She also mentioned the A/E code credit but unfortunately, my Extra is too new for that...
Maybelline or Avon?
There are in existence a small number of R-390A/URR with data plates showing contractor name "Helena Rubenstein". Long story, chain of business acquisitions
on the side; Helena Rubenstein cosmetics wholly-owned subsidiary acquired R-390A receivers somewhere, got a gov't contract, and re-sold them with the mark-up $$$ with
newly-fashioned data-plates with requisite contractor information.
Used by USAF security groups, NSA, embassies, Navy Security Groups.
You guys make me blush.
