    Loved my Globe Scout. Finally got the GLOBE VFO after I became WA2GQO.

    Great article, John. Like you, I made the trip to WRL in 1969 with 3 buddies who had also just been licensed. At that time I was living in Moorhead, Minnesota and had call sign WAØZOM. I bought my first rig ... a Galaxy GT-550 complete with all the goodies. I ran that rig for several years, both fixed and mobile. I upgraded to Extra, and my current call is WØLEN (my initials). In the late '70s I relocated to the Chicago area, where I currently reside. The memories of WRL, Galaxy Electronics and Leo and his crew are still with me.

    I had a Galaxy V in my Truck for several years and ran 40 meters with a whip And coil on the mirror of the truck. Good Radio.... Finally after 40 years I am not the only ham in the family so I recently handed down the ole Galaxy to him..73 KD0QG..

    I had the great privilege of meeting Leo Meyerson. Actually he attended an organ concert that I was playing in Omaha. When I would play concerts and there would be "blue/grey haired" audiences (HA!) I would send out a CQ de K4ULP from the organ and then go right back into whatever selection I was playing. I tell of this story and the picture of Leo and I at that concert on my QRZ bio. What a wonder fun man Mr. Meyerson was. 73s to all ... Lanny / K4ULP
