Back on the air after a 42 year absence!

Hello all. Been inactive since about 1976 and just getting interested again after retiring. Took the Tech and General exams the same day then applied and got my original call sign back WB7BDZ which was first issued to me in 1971. Wow things have changed since those days!! No Code now??? No vacuum tubes??? What the!!!. Thought about trying for Extra but looked at the study material and NO WAY!! There were words in there I’ve never heard of before! Time to go spend some bucks and get geared back up! Thanks for listening! 73s from Damscus, Or.
