I've been geocaching for a couple of years since I retired from being a merchant marine radio-electronics officer. Ham radio has been my hobby since 1964 and I've been continuously licensed since then. I upgraded to amateur extra about 40 years ago. These days I'm not very active on the air, but I still do own a couple of handhelds that I carry around with me on a regular basis. Mostly I help the other guys in my local amateur radio club set up antennas and participate in field day and activities at the local boy scout camp in the summer.
