Re: Sputnik I launched Oct. 4 1957

Hi Marty!!

Wow, nice to hear from you again....tnx for the article..

Sure takes me back...I was still on active duty with the Navy, and no way 
to put up a real station.  I was always doing whatever hamming I could, but 
little did I realize at that time what an impetus it would have in my "real 
interest" in amateur radio...

I just remember hearing a tone of some kind..I don't think the "hi" came 
along util later, but it sure provided the spark..

And again "a hearty, thank you Marty" for your efforts in explaining the 
mysteries to me as I plunged along!!  More people should read it today....
