CSRA’s Rich Past

12 04 2009

Hello CSRA Members,

I started with the CSRA in 1976 and got my ticket with the help of Jim, W9GIC (later N9GI) and the CSRA’s code and theory classes.  I thought I’d send you a couple of my CSRA treasures, QSL cards from Jim Troyer, W9GIC and Fred Hinds, W9WR.

Both attended the first meeting of the CSRA.  Also, I included a copy of W9WR’s time conversion chart which Fred included with his QSL cards.

Fred was a printer by trade.  Fred’s old house on Oak Park Ave. in Berwyn used to sit on property that is now a part of McNeal hospitals south parking lot.

I hope to try to get to a meeting soon and say hello.


Bob Kriegseis, WB9VGO
