In Canada, I hold the Basic + 5wpm morse code, which means I can transmit on all bands.

Got my commercial phone in 1976 and ham license in 1977.

I remember (and worked with) vacuum tubes!

Interesting to see how much of the newer 'consumer' technology as bled over into ham radio equipment - like Bluetooth for handi-talkies.

Around 20 years ago I did the Basic with 5wpm code then upgraded to Technician. I had actually let my ticket lapse when a coworker said he looked me up in the database and I still had two months to renew my old ticket. So I got online and renewed it. Then the same coworker suggested I should upgrade to General now that there was no code requirement so I did. Since then I am now only one FEMA test away from being official in our County's RACES club. I am taking the Skywarn class at the end of the month and I got my CERT certification last month. I also joined the Search and Rescue group but I don't yet know what the requirements are there to stay active.
