The KWARC Webmaster, Paul Cassel VE3SY is shown here in front of Gord's 19 set discussing the features and specifications of the historic relic.
Paul was reared into ham radio in the late 50's at High School using an identical rig. In fact, (statute of limitations have expired) Paul, Len Morris, VE3FJB and Dennis Elliot VE3FEZ (now 3??)pirating on 40 and 80 CW with an unused call at between 15 and 20 wpm for the better part of a year. No one challenged anyone with 15 wpm CW.... well at least not until the local Radio Inspector, Eric Rush VE3XL, suggested that us "boys" should consider writing our ham exam which we did and the rest is history.
