As holder of FCC amateur radio license WA2RVU, I have spent many hours contacting fellow amateurs all over the U.S.A., and many countries of the world. My fellow "ham" and friend Gerry Jurrens (N2GJ) has compiled a comprehensive list of celebrity amateurs on his web site. ( As for me, the only celebrities I have had conversations with beside the above Larry Ferrari, was back in the 1970's when I spent a few minutes talking to my favorite radio satirist, Jean Shepherd. I hope to once again get back on the air with a future purchase of a vertical antenna in limited size of my property, which will give me at least a bit of coverage of the amateur bands. I have more or less given up on what we hams know as the 2 meter band, due to the lack of activity with the advent of the cell phone.

Tom, Dad and Mom and we kids spent many Sunday afternoons listening to Larry play the organ at Bill Ford's home in Jobstown [also a HAM but can't remember his call letters]. Bill was the Mayor of you remember him? Kathy
