My dad had his Extra license when I was young. I sat for the General as a BSA badge at 12yo,, theory was ok,, but could not get code to speed.
He had several radios with crystals, including some early "Walky-Talky" hand helds we used for hunting. Eventually going to Icom synthesized. His house looked like a spiders nest. Dam antenni hanging off, growing out of, wired to,, every window, tree, & pole.
I tried to get him into MARS,, but he was happy to QSL the world without doing anything formal..
