Default Retired But Learning

Hi. I hope I can offer something to this gang. I have been a ham for 47 years and every day something new smacks me in the head. This is a great hobby. We cant forget about the other half, the XYL that is, after all behind every good Ham is a better wife. I must stay ploliticaly correct OM there is a better YL. Well be for I get into trouble I will say 73 and hope to see you all on the site. Leo (Lionel) K1zek/4

This is the best bunch of folks on the net. There's always a need for some of us "old geezers" to help out the newer hams and your experience is a welcome asset here on Unlike some outfits, we actually like new people!

Jump in and join the fun, and again welcome aboard!

Good to have you on the forum Leo. I know you will enjoy it here. I just looked over at you QRZ.COM photo and Bio. Good looking station. You are only a couple of hundred miles from my QTH. Sorry to hear you will be leaving our state, but SC is also a good place to be and sounds like you will have room for a huge antenna farm.

Good bunch here. All of us here to help and support each other in our interests. Looking forward to your posts and I'm sure we can all learn from your experience.

As an adult I have always felt that we are here for the purpose of learning and it should be a life long thing.
As a Kid it was the opposite, couldn't wait to get out of the school in fact left early(dropped out). Since then I have been trying to make up for lost time.
G.E.D, 94 credits at community college and 44 at a 4 year college but no degree.

Welcome to the forum I agree with the others, there are a great bunch of hams here.
