Jim Cadien, KC7ZMV
(WN6JRS, 1957, W6JRS)

I was licensed in 1957, age 16, as a novice.  The license arrived in June, WN6JRS.  I remember taking the code test.  It was given by the father of a high school classmate.  He asked if I wanted a little practice code before the test.  I said,"sure". So he sent some code, came over and looked at it and said,"You passed".  What a relief.

My second remembrance is a Novice Roundup.  When it was over I computed my score and thought that it was too low to even send it in.  My best friend had a score a little lower than mine, he sent his in, and was the high scorer in our region.  By June 1958, I had received my general, and got the same call with the N dropped, W6JRS.
