my first activity was 1966 of the 11 meters CB Band
with a 3 channel Tokai Handheld Device.
Lafayette DYNA-COM 23, later DYNA-COM 80.
Many years later I had also a Sommerkamp TS-788-DX mobil station (10+11 m )
This was a very good Device. I used this many years.
1969 to 1984 I also was active on the short wave amateur radio bands. Sometimes I bought used shortwave
transeivers. Kenwood, Drake, Swan etc. and I also built my own equipment. Many years I built for myself fine special Antennas for shortwave and VHF.
I was and still am an avid VHF radio listener. I always built all my antennas myself.
