My Teratorn Ultralight Aircraft, from Boxes to First Flight.
In 1984 my friend and I each bought a Teratorn ultralight. After a year or so of research on Ultralight Aircraft kits, we decided on this brand based on the engineering design of the aircraft.

Amateur Radio: Hamming it up since 1976. I got my Novice License, 5 wpm code (KA4SIO) after my FCC 2nd class license.
Then tested for General Class, passed but failed 13 wpm code, did get my Technician class license, N4FJI. A few years ago I upgraded to General class license with a code waver and kept the same call sign.
