Gary,
I too grew up with a soldering gun in my hand, made many radios and transmitters and like you had fun talking to my friends. One day in a differential calculus class, I was wearing a hat with a wire shaped like a tv antenna and in my breast pocket had the radio about the size of a pack of cigarrtes. A professor I never seen before, walked in, noticed me and came to investigate, pointing to my knit hat, so I just flipped one of the earphones his way and raised the volume, he stop and open big eyes. How do you do that? I did not explain just said "easy". This was way before transistors and I used a crystal. The fellow was the dean of the school I was and gave me a scholarship for electronics
