Boatanchors - K5OG


I've been an amateur radio operator since 1975.  I earned my Amateur Extra License December 6, 1977.  It is a REAL Amateur Extra Class License, 
earned before an FCC examiner.  The code test was 5 minutes at 20 wpm.  You had to have 1 minute of copy with NO ERRORS. 
As the the years went by I began to miss the radios everyone was using back then.  It is a great pleasure that I am at a time in my life where
I can collect and preserve some of
these
BOATANCHORS.
