My Grandfather was a Cockney from Bow – Hammersmith
My grandfather moved his family from London to Torquay as many did prior to WWII. I still have direct relatives (mostly cousins) in Winkfield (near Windsor Castle) and in Newton Abott in Devon. My favorite place is St. Ives in Cornwall.

My Father was from Stuttgart, but moved to the US when my Grandfather wanted nothing to do with Hitler and the Third Reich.
Imagining their lives through a Paraset and playing with simple long wire antennas – especially with my KX-3 is fun.
Next up I’ll write about a kit I (sadly) missed out on – The Bayou Jumper.
