My interest in radio communications began as a teenager in 1974. Back in those days the Citizen´s Band Radio (11 meter band) was popular world wide and used by many as means for fun and safety. My interest soon advanced from the AM chats to SSB leading to new endeavors on the 11 meter band. This period lasted until my late teenage years. Almost three decades later, I acquired my amateur radio license and picked up the thread again but this time with a different approach. I still keep some of these radios in honor of times gone by with a small taste of nostalgia.
