I was first exposed to technology in the Navy as a Radioman.
Before that, I lived a typical rural life where you worked as a carpenter, butcher, or electrical helper to make some gas money and you spent your time off souping up your 72 Nova SS 350 and living for cruising the streets at night.
But time goes on and living on a ship for six years I found my interests leaning towards the electronics that I operated, and how to work on them.
Somewhere in the ocean, working those boring mid watches and tuning the receivers for those distant stations that would let me hear what was happening in our world, I became interested in amateur radio.
It wasn’t too long before I was eagerly waiting for mail call when they would bring me the latest edition of 73.
I loved the how too articles.
Sure, they showed the theory as well, but they broke everything down into a step by step how to article, and it was great.
But the icing on the cake was the editorials of Wayne Green that got you to thinking.
If you’re not into amateur radio, you’re probably wondering why I am bringing this up.
Let’s just say that if I can find a way to do it, I believe that Going Forward (see the left hand sidebar) with K.A.A.W will strive to do the same things by bringing you authors and articles that will:
- Show you how to put a roof over your head
- Heat and Cool your home
- Raise and Grow your own food
- And introduce you to some wonderful hobbies.
And most importantly, show you how to do this for very little money so that you can keep more of your money for your family, AND Get you to thinking about how we, the people of planet earth, can do our part to build a better future for all, not just a privileged few…
Sadly, he passed away not too long ago, but his editorials and his style lives on in his magazines, and you can still read them thanks to him agreeing to archive them at this site.
