    My Elmers were books.

    I'd still be trying to find the PTT on a handheld

    No perhaps about it, IMHO. In 1920, Radio was predominantly a young man's game. The young lad is showing his beloved grandfather how it works, not the other way around.

    Norman Rockwell was a master at telling an entire story in a single picture. But one has to know the context of the times to read the story correctly.

    Books and curiosity ?
    I guess my real inspiration were the hams I heard on the shortwave as a young teenager. Possibly if I had access to an actual Elmer I might not have waited 20 years to actually do something about it

    My Elmers were the older kids in my high school amateur radio club. They used to hold theory classes after school.

    My elmer was the ARRL License Manual, Ameco 33 1/3 LP code record, QST and "trial and error".

    REMLE is elmer spelled backwards!

    I was a Elmer as a Technician and my "student" was an Extra. Me thinks my "student" simply memorized the answers where I studied the content. :cool:

    NOT APPROPRIATE here, I'm afraid. Keep it for your buddies, or better, yourself..
