    This was exactly what it was about.

    Still in 1947 most of the European amateurs belonged to the educated classes of society, were gentlemen that knew Morse. and it had generally been quite hard to obtain a licence.

    Post-war this had been somewhat diluted, when military servicemen got their licences without examination just on their service merits. This caused some discontent among pre-war amateurs.

    But, the heresy of "no-code" licences was still some decades distant in the future.

    K4AGO and WN1MB like this.

    Outstanding... Thank you very much for posting this. 1947 was the year I was born. One question... Is RSGB

    Radio Society of Great Britain?

    A lot of "equipment nostalgia" for us European old-timers;

    Wireless set 12 transmitter, Marconi CR100:s, Pre-war HRO:s, RCA AR-88, the ubiquitous R-1155 and others.

    Many of these became "staples" well into the 60s.
