Did you attend one of the summer youth camp sessions sponsored by the Gilven-Roth YMCA in western NC? I was there, and passed the general exam (the FCC came to the camp to administer) in 1962. I had received my novice in November of 1961. I recall some great technical training (the Ameco book) and of course lots of CW practice with an [Ameco] CPO. Lots of usual summer camp activities too but the emphasis was on getting that general license. Any others out there who went to the camp? Good times...great camaraderie. That's what's missing now I guess.
