Boxes of Tubes

Dad’s friend lived on the hill too. As I recall, he worked at the telephone company. He would bring boxes of surplus Tektronix tubes. That and cigarette smell made the daily trip to the ham shack feel great to this pre-teen boy. Dad and mom did not smoke but "Rich" sure did.

When my Dad and I visited his home to fix dad's KWM-1, I remember having a great time with a touch of shame. That monster would trouble me for a very long time.
