I got my General Class license when I was just 12 years old, 60 years ago. I was active until about 1962, when I decided to get married and settle down to some degree. (Never really settled down, though.) My call sign was W3JQL, and unfortunately, I never took the time to renew the license when it expired. Now, contemplating a trip down the ICW and across to the Bahamas and Mexico, that license may just come in handy.
