Hello Early Starters
I was an early starter too. Tracing it back in memory is a good brain exercise, but here are some milestones. In June 1959 I started my first professional job at 93.7 FM 21.5Watts, during the summer between my junior & senior year of high school. Prior to that I’d been running KCAM 1630kHz, Allied Radio Knight Model 760 Phono Oscillator 38K162 (Schematic (c) 1953), using the small slice of extra space above the 1600kHz top of the dial, ever since grade school. So I think I started in 1956.
All that being true and sworn before this august body of peers, I waive all claim to rank as far as “starting first” or “third,” etc.
I’m just glad to have started and I will support whoever holds the claim of being “first.”
