Glen Zook, K9STH, began his elmering and mentoring by writing his first article for 73 Magazine in 1961 at the tender age of 17.  Glen has gone on to write many practical ham radio articles from modifying a Heathkit Globe Chief for six meters to installing chemical ground rods for proper shack grounding.  He has a collection of restored “boat anchors” that are copies of all of the rigs he has ever owned.  As he pays extra attention to the details, his rigs are in as new condition as possible.   I know know that will enjoy this QSO with K9STH.
