|On the 11th day of December, 1957|
These are the founders of the Pocatello Amateur Radio Club.
Most likely there were many others interested in the club but
these were the 5 that signed the incorporation papers
with the State of Idaho. They left their mark on Pocatello,
all of them went SK long ago.
They lived in a different world, their rigs were
big and heavy
full of vacuum tubes, however, their dreams about Ham Radio
were probably much like each of ours.
Thank you old friend for a job well done. 73
