    I started out at age 16 in 1971. I was the ultimate oxymoron: a hippie nerd.

    I can carry two HTs, my MacBook, several different interface cables, and a few manuals in mine, which is more like a soft sided briefcase than a man purse. Since I don't go into bars and get challenged for my choice in American Tourister baggage, I don't have a problem.

    I prefer geek over nerd.

    I've been involved in radio/electronics and the telecom industry my whole life... big time geek/nerd. Just cannot help it -- it's a God-given gift.

    Sounds like many of us have The Knack... Dilbert's "The Knack"

    So many don't understand... nor do we want them to! :D:eek::cool:

    Another 16YO Ex-Hippie Geek checking in.

    OMG! Dat's ME!! Even to the gold plated wrist band. 16YO. Novice Licensed and discovering gurls in 1968. Gurls won. Married in 1970. And again... and yet again... Took some practice to get that right :). QRT until 2009. Took even longer to get THAT right :D.

    I will NOT post my long hair pictures with striped pirate pants (with FRINGE!), headband and open neck "Ted Nugent" shirt. I will NOT! Nope. No way...

    But, maybe I will look for them this weekend. Stay tuned :p.

    Nerd to the MAX and damn proud!

    When I meet new friends I always bring up that I'm a ham radio operator that's into morse code. Surprisingly, most people find it interesting and will let me talk their ear off for a few minutes. You'll be surprised at how many people know someone that is or was a ham. Many people also know the difference between CB and ham radio. So far, no one's shown interest in getting a license. Still, there's a lot more public awareness about ham radio than you might think.
