On January 15, 1991, I officially became a licensed amateur radio operator. Given I was a student I used the gear belonging to W4AQL, our campus ham radio club, and made a CW QSO with Finland.
To be honest, the whole thing was anticlimactic. Since junior high school, I wanted my ham license. Once I had it I realized I had no desire to talk to strangers over the radio. I was more enamored in the technology than the practice.
