|Message||Went to radio school from March 1955 to Sept 1955 class 19 Bainbridge Md. I was there when a first class instructor won a brand new Mercury then ended up dating the hottest wave in school. I bet she went on to make Captain. I don't know how i passed because i could not copy 22wpm and was lucky they sent me to west coast where NPG was only 18WPM. At that speed i was a big man and went on to make RM1 actually in 4 years. To be honest the only way i got into radio school was because they were taking anyway at that time as there was only 23 guys in our class. But i turned out fine, better then expected because i had good help aboard ship. It was good years and young years that dwell in my memory.|
