    Re: Intros

    My name is Ryan and my callsigns are N2RJ, 9Y4RAJ and M0RAJ (pick one!)

    Not really "youth" but younger than the average ham. (29).

    I got licensed at age 19, so I've been a ham for 10 years running.

    I'm originally from Trinidad and Tobago (9Y, IOTA SA-011). I learned about ham radio in school where one of my teachers (9Y4AL) was a ham.

    Anyway, my personal belief is that we need to encourage young people in the hobby, especially those that are interested in science and tech.

    I had a lot of fun building projects, SWLing and helping out with operating events when I was a high schooler. Unfortunately for me, getting licensed was a lesser priority due to the cost, so I used the club station with a licensed control op.

    Hope you all enjoy the Island and the hobby!

    I had a teacher in high school that was a ham...I found that out about 20 years after HS.
    I am surprised at such a sudden deterioration in a woman whose only ailment was a lazy anus.

    My high-school electronics teacher and Elmer was Stan, WB8WDQ. He scrounged hamfests for broken gear for the club station. Stipulation was that if we wanted to use the equipment, we would have to diagnose and repair it.

    I started in ham radio at age 13 in 1953. Unfortunately, I found girls and cars more interesting and cheaper so I didn't get my first license until 1966. It has been fun since then too.

    Welcome to the Island, Frank.
    Pull up a deck chair and a line because the mahi are biting down at the Island bar at the end of the pier.
    Enjoy your stay and the warm breeze.
