My first call in 1958 was KN5UTY "issued" by the fcc at age 7 but it "expired". When I was 13 I took the "General" test and might I add I had to walk uphill both ways in a blizzard in New Orleans, I "passed" and 6 weeks later I got my ticket with the "call" W5CAT issued by fox charlie charlie. I "started" a radio club in college years later. I "provided" the equipment SX101 and B&W 5100 and since the college was "catholic" the procter, Father "Bruce" screened boys for the club. They were good guys, a little jumpy, but nice fellows. I let my ticket expire and "retook" the test in 1977, 50 years ago. I passed and got K5wTF. I was living in Marrero La and dating a "gal" from Westwego. She was a good cajun girl, spread newspaper out on her desk at "lunch" time to eat crayfish. She was good at suking dem "heads". In 2003 I upgraded to Extra "special" with the call AG4YO. A "couple" years later, Riley called and said I was being "awarded" the KY5U call for being the oldest license on "QRZ". Me and my wife went out to the "buffet" to celebrate. She calls it the "trough" but she's a high class gal from Pensacola. Took me 3 years to "empty" out all the sand in her. She was packed tighter than a Thanksgiving "turkey".
