Default HAM art

The old Schlitz advertisement just brought back my childhood memories of my cousin Art, this was probably around 1968-70, his vacuum tube radios and the fella he spoke with from Western Europe when I was visiting. Wow, I can still remember the call letters/numbers Art had collected from other operators, they would mail these paper ID's to each other after initial contact. Art had several of these on his wall. Just like the artwork. Only his wife, Vivian, was blond. By the way, Art did drink his Schlitz from a glass and the bottles were returned to be re-filled. Cook County deposit you know, 2 cents each. Art wrote "Motorola" repair manuals for a living. Oh well, gotta go fix my turntable.
