introduction of new members

Post by bergieb on Sat Mar 09, 2019 8:38 pm

Hi. A member of a local antique radio club suggested this as one of the forums he routinely scanned and posted on, so I am giving it a try. I am a career Navy electronic technician who has now retired from a second career. My wife has suggested it is now time to start working on the dozens of radios that I have hauled around for decades. I think she's right, as usual.

Our wives are always right, right?   Smile

Where did you attend Navy Technical Schools?  I went to avionics A school in Millington, then Whidbey Island for several C schools.  

I was not a career military guy (USMC), only in for a single "hitch."  Some of my best friends were Navy.  Later, when I was out, I went to State Technical Institute at Memphis.  A number of Navy instructors also attended under an "ADCOP" program.  

IMHO, the Navy (and Marines) had some of the finest instructors I've ever known.

Thanks for asking about the schooling. I was a surface Navy ET, although I did do a tour on a submarine rescue (ASR-Cool out of Pearl Harbor. I did ETA school at Treasure Island (San Francisco) and numerous "c" schools throughout the U.S. I am hoping that my miniature/microminiature component repair training at Norfolk, VA and Charleston, SC will be very useful in repairing these projects. Again, thanks for commenting.
