    In middle school a teacher held after-school Novice License and CW classes. After earning the license the local ham club loaned me a 40 meter transmitter and receiver. I strung a dipole between the chimney and a tree in the back yard and the rest is history. That was around 1976 and my call was WA6YGS.

    Started at 13, as a consummate SWL, and still am! Got my novice after 26 yrs, but still love to listen. LUV this hobby, and glad to live to the modern technology!

    Probably not. Just like coin collecting, car mechanics and growing beards... there are hobbies that just don't interest a lot of women.

    My dad was a SWL from an early age and he used to repair all the local HAM's gear and assist with antennas, field days etc. So I was introduced to the amazing world of the SWL from the age of about 9, (used to take 2x value radios rx with the one and find the oscillating freq with the other, thus I was able to listen to USB / LSB on an AM radio HI HI) then CB radio's took hold of me from the age of 12 onwards. I only got the courage to study and get my ticket Oct 2018 (32 years later after being introduced to the hobby) #slowlearner HI HI
