What a coincidence Gord, after a spell in a radio and TV repair shop in my teens and being a keen radio ham in the UK (G8GUH), I took a degree in geology back in the mid 1970’s, later an M.Phil in engineering and have been in the earth sciences for the rest of my working life, but always retaining an interest in radios. After many years of not doing anything practical in radio at all, I became interested in restoring 1920’s/1930’s domestic sets about three or four years ago, plus re-kindled an interest in Eddystone communication sets. I even took my Canadian ham ticket last year to become VE7GUH. I don’t do much ‘real geology’ any more though – mainly management stuff with a smattering of technical review and focused on environmental remediation projects.
