Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute Handiham World Weekly E-Letter for the week of Wednesday, 24 September 2014

Welcome to Handiham World.

Pat and Newt check out a generator, circa 1971.

Picture: The scene is a farmyard set against a background of tractors and cultivating equipment.  The time is circa 1970, and in this old photo we see a 20-something year old me on the left, a yellow gasoline generator in the center, and my friend Newt on the right, showing me how to work the generator.  Newt was kind enough to host several of us on his family farm for Field Day even though he himself was not a ham radio operator.  His brother and farming partner Bill was, so Newt was very familiar with Amateur Radio.
