My husband has been a ham radio operator since he was 12 years old, and back in 1992 I was getting ready to undergo vocal cord surgery. And my husband...it was always a wish for him to get me involved in ham radio, so I had to take the test, the morse code test, of course, and I passed it!
Emory taught me how to do morse code by tapping out the characters on my hand so that when I went in for the surgery, after it, for a month I couldn't speak. This way I was able to tap out to him, you know, "fix me something to eat".. (laughing).. "fix me some soup".. I'm kidding...
It was something that I'm so glad I learned, and he's just a wonderful teacher. I got my license in January 1993 and I have been a ham radio operator ever since.
My call letters are KD4WUJ!
