Edward Tapscott Memorial Amateur Radio Station W6TDM sk
Hello from John Ruckert, WB6-ATN. My actual present station location is Northwest of Los Angeles City College, & Bralle Institute - where I taught Basic Ham-Radio for 5 years in the 1980's. Among my favorite achievements about that same time, was being a member of the Southern California ATV Club, & our members in the Long Beach area re-broadcast Jay Leno doing a 10-minute monologue of Astronaut jokes - up to the Astronauts, as they flew over the southwest USA ! Earily memories during the mid to late 60's, were of quickly preferring VHF / UHF Simplex & Repeater QSO's, after making many world-wide contacts on the low-bands. My first 2-meter Transceiver was a Heathkit "Twoer", then upgraded to a Gonset "Gooney-Bird" Communicator 3, & more recently Alinco Mobile's' for 2, 220 & 450. Thank-you all for the "high-class fellowship" !
